Daniel Jones: Selected Works

Overview

Daniel Jones (1881-1967) played a significant role in the emergence of phonetics as a fully developed academic discipline in the first half of the twentieth century. His views on the subject not only provided the foundations for the British tradition but also had a considerable, and often underrated, impact on the American structuralist school. This eight volume collection makes available the first editions of Jones' standard books, i.e. The Pronunciation of English (1909), An English Pronouncing Dictionary (1917) and An Outline of English Phonetics (1918). In addition, Jones' crucial pioneering works, now out of print for many decades, are made easily accessible to scholars once again. Numerous articles encompassing a variety of phonetic/phonological topics, for example, phonemic analysis, juncture, models of pronunciation, and historiography, are also included (converted where necessary from the original phonetic transcription to the conventional orthography). Much unpublished work, ranging from lecture notes on the sound systems of French, Spanish and Italian, to hitherto unpublished details of Jones' dealings with celebrities such as George Bernard Shaw and the Poet Laureate Robert Bridges, appears here for the first time. Also incorporated are extracts from his correspondence with prominent contemporary linguists such as David Abercrombie, Roger Kingdon, Harold Palmer and H. J. Uldall.
