An excellent complement to the authors' volume on General British English. The sections on phonetic theory are wonderfully concise and precise, and the practice material with audio recordings will prove extremely useful to any student wanting to improve their American English pronunciation. Christian Jensen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Christian Jensen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark This much-needed up-to-date description of General American phonetics with its comprehensive practice material will be welcomed by all students of American English. A fantastic achievement. Hiroshi Miura, Senshu University, Japan The authors have succeeded in presenting complex material in a way that renders it accessible to beginners. The book's solid theoretical basis and the abundance of practice material make it a must buy for both teachers and students. I'm sure I will use it in my teaching, and I'll definitely be referring my students to this informative material. Petr Roesel, University of Mainz, Germany
