That is what Mr. Jitendra has so successfully done in this book. I am happy to commend this book to all the readers. —DR. R.K. PATNAIK Former Vice Chancellor, The ICFAI University, Tripura

Das Buch stellt phonetisches und phonologisches Basiswissen in vier Kapiteln dar, wobei u.a. folgende Aspekte angesprochen werden: Anatomie der Sprechwerkzeuge Physiologie der Lautbildung Klassifikation der Konsonanten und Vokale Phonetische Transkription Prosodische Einheiten und Merkmale Phonologische Grundbegriffe Merkmal- und Prozessphonologie Zusätzlich wird mit einer knappen Darstellung von Artikulationsstörungen sowie von prosodischen und phonologischen Störungen eine Brücke geschlagen zum logopädisch-therapeutischen Einsatz dieses Basiswissens. Über 40 Abbildungen, fett umrahmte Definitionen und erläuternde bzw. zusammenfassende Randglossen illustrieren den Text, der sich über ein ausführliches Sachregister mit mehr als 300 Einträgen erschließen lässt. Zu jedem Kapitel gibt es weiterführende Literaturhinweise sowie eine Reihe von Übungsaufgaben mit Lösungsangaben.
