British English Phonetic Transcription provides comprehensive guidance and practice for transcribing. Not only are words (consonants, vowels, primary/secondary stresses) and connected speech (weak forms, elision, assimilation) explored, but intonation patterns as well. The book is designed well and gives clear instructions for the self-studying learner. Both beginners and advanced students are catered for. (For the latter, there is information in the final part of the book regarding clear and dark /l/, glottal reinforcement and replacement, nasalisation, and devoicing of obstruents.) The authors, Paul Carley and Inger M. Mees, have set up a companion website with helpful audio recordings.
