Understanding how sounds formâ€”and how sounds combine to create wordsâ€” is imperative to learning how to transcribe speech phonetically. Taking a "meta" approach, A Phonetics Workbook for Students by Heidi Harbers prepares students to transcribe speech phonetically by helping them become aware of the sounds of English phonology.Â Following a systematic, learning-friendly organization, chapter's progress from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription. Unlike other workbooks, its exercises are varied and challenging and develop both foundational and critical thinking skills. By teaching students how to develop both an ear and eye for phonetics, the workbook provides a superior foundation from which transcription skills can develop.Â
Becoming proficient in phonetics takes practice, practice, and more practice. The Applied Phonetics Workbook provides just the resources to allow you to practice and hone your transcription skills. The three audio CDs that accompany the workbook provide a wide variety of transcription exercises. Exercises begin at a very basic level and build as your skills improve and develop.
