Date: Mon, 6 Jan 1997 15:12:54 -0500 From: Mark Mandel Subject: phonetics book? I promised to recommend a book or two to a friend's smart teenager to help him learn some basic phonetics. He invented his own "phonetic" alphabet -- a familiar game to many of us, I suspect -- but made some common mistakes and confusions, starting with interference from English spelling (gaah). Can anyone suggest a title or two? He would be reading on his own, with me ready to answer questions but available mostly by email, in person only once a month or less. Mark A.
