Distributed for Intellect Ltd
This book provides a detailed account of the movements of the lips, tongue and other speech organs with the help of tracings from films produced at the Institut de Phonétique de Strasbourg. A wide range of geographical and social accents of French is also discussed, and frequent comparisons are made with English and many other languages, drawing on sociolinguistic and cross-linguistic research.
