Excerpt from A Practical Introduction to French Phonetics: For the Use of English-Speaking Students and Teachers

In the first part of this book I have endeavoured to fix the identity of each sound in standard French by (i) giving a list of its traditional spellings, (ii) defining the position of the organs of speech necessary for its production, and (iii) explaining its relations to other sounds, usually its nearest English analogues. Where the pronunciation of the latter ?uctuates, reference is made to the most important varia tions, including those current In America and Australia. Occasion is everywhere taken to warn the student against the errors' into which he will be most likely to fall.

The second part deals with the factors which control the combination of sounds in connected speech. One needs only an elementary acquaintance with the language to be aware that a knowledge of these factors is of vital import ance. Here, again, wherever they seemed likely to be helpful, comparisons have been drawn between the two languages.
