French Phonetics

A Guide to Correct Pronunciation of French and Cahier d'Exercises

Trudie Maria Booth

Paperback
This enhanced edition of French Phonetics is intended for college-level instruction, for self-study and for reference purposes. The text, including Cahier d'Exercices, helps the student to become proficient in the pronunciation of French by explaining the characteristics of the French sound system clearly and systematically and by giving precise rules of pronunciation throughout. After introducing the learner to the International Phonetic Alphabet, the manual proceeds to a thorough examination of every sound in the French language in relation to its spelling and its phonological surroundings. If the book is used as a reference tool, the reader will be able to verify the pronunciation of many difficult verb forms and names not found in a dictionary. Students will be able to phonetically transcribe French words, to read a phonetically transcribed text, and most importantly to pronounce correctly any French word that they encounter, even if they have never seen it before. Cassettes or CD's for French Phonetics and the Cahier d'Exercices are available by contacting the author at Booth@up.edu; Please cc her alternate e-mail address in your request: trudie_booth@yahoo.com « less more »
