About this item
Thisbook was edited by R E Asher and Eugenie Henderson and published by Edinburgh University Press in 1981. The book is in six parts: the first three deal with the history of ideas in phonetics, specifically basic concepts, processes and voice quality and dynamics. The two othe rparts are concerned with national and individual contributions to phonetic theory and description. The last part concerns writing systems and phonetic analysis. The book is in very good condition with no marks or highlights to pages. The paper jacket shows some rubbing to edges and is slightly torn to top of spine. The blue hardback cover beneath is very good. This book will be of interest to those studying or involved in the field of language.
