This book is a comprehensive guide to the International Phonetic Alphabet, whose aim is to provide a universally agreed system of notation for the sounds of languages, and which has been widely used for over a century. The Handbook presents the basics of phonetic analysis so that the principles underlying the Alphabet can be readily understood, and gives examples of the use of each of the phonetic symbols. The application of the Alphabet is then demonstrated in nearly 30 'Illustrations' - concise analyses of the sound systems of a range of languages, each of them accompanied by a phonetic transcription of a passage of speech. The Handbook also includes the 'Extensions' to the Alphabet, covering speech sounds beyond the sound-systems of languages, and a listing of the internationally agreed computer codings for phonetic symbols. It is an essential reference work for all those involved in the analysis of speech.

The PREFACE:

THIS Reader is intended to help those wishing to acquire a colloquial knowledge of Panjabi.

The pronunciation of the language is here for the first time represented on strictly phonetic principles without regard to the affinities of the words with cognate words of other languages. This is the method recommended by our foremost language teachers, and now widely used in England in connexion with the teaching of French and other European languages. The method has the approval of the Board of Education (see Circular No. 797, a memorandum on methods of Modern Language Teaching issued in 1912, §§ 36, 37).

The system of transcription used is that of the International Phonetic Association, this being the alphabet almost universally adopted in England in those schools and colleges where languages are taught on phonetic principles. The success with which the adoption of this system has been attended in connexion with European languages is ample justification for its introduction to a language to which it is new.

The criticisms of phonetic methods by some who have had no experience of these methods render it desirable to point out that the object of phonetic transcription is not to teach the student how to form speech sounds; its object is to teach him how to use the right sound in the right place in connected speech. The formation of the isolated sounds is best learned by careful imitation coupled with a knowledge of phonetic theory (that is, a study of the positions of the organs of speech in forming the correct sounds) and the practice of suitable phonetic exercises.

Mr. Grahame Bailey's unique qualifications for writing such a reader as the present are well-known to most of those interested in the Panjabi language. But for the benefit of those who may not already have heard of his work it may be mentioned that he is one of those very rare Englishmen who can speak an Indian language exactly like a native, and that he is the author of the Northern Panjabi translation of the New Testament and joint author of the only existing Northern Panjabi grammar.

Testimony as to the accuracy, of Mr. Bailey's work is therefore needless. It may, however, interest readers to know that I had an opportunity, when in Lahore in January 1913, of testing one of his phonetic texts with some native Panjabis; the text was pronounced by them to be absolutely correct, and they expressed great astonishment when they learned that it had been prepared by an Englishman.


Francophone Post-colonial Cultures

RRP $304.99

The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia--regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common. Despite enormous differences among all the countries where French is spoken, Francophone literatures tend to deal with a similar spread of issues. This volume positions the study of the Francophone world and its cultures as a comparative project, in which post-colonial Francophone cultures and the specific alterity of these cultures emerge as inextricable from and essential to an understanding of modern France. Organized by region, boasting an international roster of contributors, and including summaries of selected creative and critical works and a guide to selected terms and figures, Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is an ideal resource for scholars of French literature and advanced students looking to read beyond the French literary canon.


The Internationalisation Of Mobile Telecommunications

RRP $309.99

Peter Curwen and Jason Whalley review the strategic operations of, and technological options available to, the 30 most prominent international mobile operators. This review is initially based upon the Asia-Pacific, African, European, Latin American and North American regions before moving on to take a worldwide perspective. The authors place these mobile operators within a wider business context via a broad ten year appraisal of the companies involved in the entire telecommunications, media & technology (TMT) sector. The issue as to whether there truly is such a thing as a global mobile operator is addressed; the answer, in practice, is negative.Based upon the very latest data available, the underlying premise of the book is that mobile telecommunications is such a fast-moving sector that operators are obliged to alter their international strategies as circumstances unravel without necessarily having a long-term master plan, and hence that opportunism is a hallmark of operators' international strategies. This state-of-the-art overview of the internationalisation of mobile telecommunications will prove essential reading for academics and practitioners with a vested interest in technology, telecommunications and strategic management.
