As a general reference guide to phonemic inventory of American English this book is unraveled. I have never come across a book containing that much info on each phoneme, including allophonic variations, acoustic parameters and some auditory peculiarities of main allophones, spelling-pronunciations conversions, frequency data, etc.
A workbook with CDs can be used as a nice tool to practice American English transcription on basic level, with some rare exercises on transcribing disordered and accented speech. There are loads of exercises, but they are not very advanced. the author follows the principle by going from easy tasks to more difficult ones, but he does not go very far into details. Transcription exercises in Roach's Phonetics and Phonology (one of the best PRACTICAL phonetics books for beginners, British English) are better, although there are much fewer of them. This workbook can provide additional exercises (please watch the differences between British and American English if you combine) and for some practice in disordered and accented speech.
of sounds. very easy to understand. very helpul with glossary
workbook goes along with the book.
Two thumbs Up !!
