"Applied English Phonology responds to the need for a practical and accessible source on applied phonology for students from applied linguistics, TESOL, and speech pathology programs.

This new edition has been thoroughly revised and extended and is now accompanied by numerous sound files for transcription practice, new exercises, explanations of sociophonetic variation, and systematic and expanded coverage of regional vowel shifts in the United States. It also includes entirely new sections on the role of Optimality Theory and perception in second language phonology.
