Sound Foundations

Sound Foundations

Sound Foundations is an ideal introduction to the English phonological system and an invaluable resource, whether you teach full pronunciation courses or you would simply like to improve the quality of your work on pronunciation as it comes up in the classroom.

The first half of the book is a description of the phonological system. In it, Adrian Underhill discusses the sounds of English and describes how they are physically produced. The second half consists of creative and practical classroom activities that you can use to help your students acquire more comprehensible pronunciation.

In this new edition, an Audio CD has been added, which contains clearly recorded examples of the sounds described in the book.
