"Sprache" kommt von "sprechen". Daher erfordert jede Beschäftigung mit dem Phänomen Sprache zunächst einmal grundlegende Kenntnisse über die Bildung und die Funktion von Sprachlauten. Die artikulatorische Phonetik und die Phonologie umfassen diesen Gegenstandsbereich, der sowohl für die Sprach- und Sprechwissenschaften, als auch für logopädische, sprachtherapeutische und sprachdidaktische Zielsetzungen unverzichtbar ist. Das Buch stellt phonetisches und phonologisches Basiswissen in vier Kapiteln dar, wobei u.a. folgende Aspekte angesprochen werden: Anatomie der Sprechwerkzeuge Physiologie der Lautbildung Klassifikation der Konsonanten und Vokale Phonetische Transkription Prosodische Einheiten und Merkmale Phonologische Grundbegriffe Merkmal- und Prozessphonologie Zusätzlich wird mit einer knappen Darstellung von Artikulationsstörungen sowie von prosodischen und phonologischen Störungen eine Brücke geschlagen zum logopädisch-therapeutischen Einsatz dieses Basiswissens. Über 40 Abbildungen, fett umrahmte Definitionen und erläuternde bzw. zusammenfassende Randglossen illustrieren den Text, der sich über ein ausführliches Sachregister mit mehr als 300 Einträgen erschließen lässt. Zu jedem Kapitel gibt es weiterführende Literaturhinweise sowie eine Reihe von Übungsaufgaben mit Lösungsangaben. Damit eignet sich das Buch sowohl als Grundlagenlektüre in Lehrveranstaltungen als auch zum Selbststudium.

This book provides an introduction to central areas of English linguistics. The book consists of six large sections: language and linguistics - sounds - words - sentences - utterances - applied linguistics. Each of these sections is subdivided into a number of chapters, some of which address beginners, some of which are intended for more advanced students. The book is written from a foreign student's perspective of the English language, i.e. aspects relevant to foreign language teaching and didactics are especially focussed on. The book also provides basic facts concerning the history of the language and differences between British and American English. The main idea is to demonstrate that usually in linguistics there is not just one way of describing certain facts. This is why each section contains a chapter written for beginners providing a broad outline of the area and introducing the basic terminology for each field. The other chapters in each section highlight certain linguistic facts in more detail and give an idea of how particular theories account for them. The book can thus be used from the first semester onwards but is also intended to serve as an importantstudy aidfor final B.A.-examinations. Key features comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of English linguistics highly accessible through a strongly didactic, reader-friendly orientation

View: 4261

This is a fully integrated course book aimed at university students of English in the German-speaking region. It presents a staged and clearly developed introduction to the theory of pronunciation combined with a wealth of transcription exercises and an accompanying CD. The book requires no prior knowledge of linguistics. From the outset, it explains key concepts in easy-to-understand language, highlights key terms in the text for easy review, and gives translations of many of the terms into German. Additionally, a glossary provides students with a handy quick reference. A special feature of the book is that particular attention is given to areas the authors have experienced as challenging for students, such as the difference between phonetics and phonology, inconsistencies in terminology, and different transcription conventions. The transcription exercises guide students from exploratory tasks to basic transcription to the more demanding transcription of natural dialogue, and all exercises are supplied with annotated solutions. The book is carefully divided into lessons and exercises which can be managed in 12 two-hour classes, leaving enough time for review and examination in a university term of 14 weeks or more. Despite its clearly defined scope, the book also prepares the students for the study of other languages or for courses in general linguistics through its general approach and frequent references to other languages. As an independent and fully-integrated course, A Manual of English Phonetics and Phonology presents the teacher with a valuable class-ready resource, and the student with a stimulating, attainable, and insightful introduction to the study of linguistics in general, and phonetics and phonology in particular.
