Linguistics: An Introduction

By William B. McGregor



2.5 — Links

The home page of the International Phonetic Association is worth visiting. It contains much useful information, including the International Phonetic Alphabet, links to phonetic fonts, sample sound recordings, and links to other useful websites.

For phonetic fonts, see the links in 2.1 — IPA chart and fonts.

Peter Ladefoged's excellent textbook on phonetics (2nd edition 2005, see textbook p. 364 for details) has an accompanying website that is well worth visiting. The pages for Chapter 2 give examples of tone (in Standard Chinese and Cantonese) and intonation (in English) (see p. 44 of textbook).
