"This is an excellent book for speech clinicians, language teachers, and researchers." Dorothy Haubner, ASHA Review
This book is a comprehensive guide to the International Phonetic Alphabet, whose aim is to provide a universally agreed system of notation for the sounds of languages, and which has been widely used for over a century. The Handbook presents the basics of phonetic analysis so that the principles underlying the Alphabet can be readily understood, and gives examples of the use of each of the phonetic symbols. The application of the Alphabet is then demonstrated in nearly 30 'Illustrations' - concise analyses of the sound systems of a range of languages, each of them accompanied by a phonetic transcription of a passage of speech. The Handbook also includes the 'Extensions' to the Alphabet, covering speech sounds beyond the sound-systems of languages, and a listing of the internationally agreed computer codings for phonetic symbols. It is an essential reference work for all those involved in the analysis of speech.

I bought this to get the list of Unicode codes for typing IPA symbols (the entire list is in the back of the book!) I was able by dint of reading the list to make the distinction between symbols that look alike but which are not the same, which is very useful for keyboarding purposes. I was able to compile the IPA list for two languagues where I found only contradictory lists on the internet. It helps if you are using a word processor and want to add symbols to macros or to use an "autocorrect" feature. I can actually insert symbols in my preferred word processor without having to hunt through lists now. (I'm using LibreOffice for my chosen languages as it is Unicode-compliant and the Autocorrect and other features do what they're supposed to) and I'm DITCHING MICROSOFT!!! YA-A-A-Y!!!! Liberation Day is here!
Love this book.

This book is very complete and self explanatory. It has all sounds and their symbols, as well as their location where they were placed on the phonetic system

This book is exactly what one would expect it to be: a thorough explanation of the International Phonetic Alphabet. It has a beginning section on the description of consonant and vowel sounds and thier places of articulation. The best part about the book is it analyzes the phonetic alphabet of most of the world's languages including many lesser used ones such as Bulgarian, Catalan, and Igbo, for example. The back has a description of each of the symbols so one can figure out what sound an unfamiliar symbol represents. This is a good reference book for all linguistics.
