RESOURCES FOR PHONETICS AND PHONOLOGY
1. When the Fourth Edition of English Phonetics and Phonology was published we set up a website with additional material. Cambridge has recently changed the format of the book websites that it hosts and unfortunately I don't like the new version. You will probably have to set up a username with CUP before you can access the material. What you will find is a long list of files that you can read or download, without much organization. There are various old recordings, with audio files of an interview with me and (listed near the end) some video files of me giving talks about intonation when I was the invited speaker at a phonetics conference in Santiago, Chile. You can get my Glossary (or Little Encyclopaedia), but there's a link to that on this page. The most useful material (I hope) is the set of extra exercises, some of which are audio exercises and some written, one for each chapter of the book.
2. GLOSSARY (A LITTLE ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF PHONETICS)
This is available on the website for English Phonetics and Phonology; it started life as my Penguin book Introducing Phonetics. You can also download it from here without having to go through the CUP formalities.
3. An old paper about Phonetics on Wikipedia and other web sources
4. Practical phonetic training - a brief Wikipedia-style explanation
5. Basis of articulation: a translation by Emilio Marquez of a section of a book by S. Gili Gaya.
6. Many years ago I compiled (with the help of many other researchers) a Bibliography of Rhythm and Timing. It would be great if this could be updated and continued, but the work would be too much for me to do alone.
7. JIPA Specimen - British English (RP), paper published in Journal of the IPA, (2004) vol 34.2, pp. 239-345. The corresponding sound file is available on the Wikipedia article on RP.
8. "Notable speakers of RP". The Wikipedia article on Received Pronunciation has a list of "notable speakers". I thought it would be useful to have links to YouTube clips of each speaker, but since such material is not suitable for a Wikipedia article, I have decided to put them on my own website here instead.
9. English affricate phonemes: I have copied the three pages on which I discuss the phonemic status of affricates in English phonology. You can see it here.
10. Although I can't claim any credit for it, I'm happy to recommend Janis Krumins' app which lets you search for phoneme patterns and sequences. It's quite similar to the Sound Search feature of the CD-ROM of the Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary and Longman Pronunciation Dictionary, but has additional functions such as searches for Vowel and Consonant patterns (something I always wanted to have in the CEPD app). Here's the link, and some more information:
It converts IPA symbols to English word(s), and it could be used to familiarize oneself with the International Phonetic Alphabet. And using wildcard symbols (any, consonant, vowel), one can find a wide variety of similar-sounding words - rhymes, consonances, assonances, alliterations, pararhymes, and more.
