A Survey of Modern English

Fully revised and updated, the second edition of this authoritative guide is a comprehensive, scholarly and systematic review of modern English. In one volume the book presents a description of both the linguistic structure of present-day English and its geographical, social, gender, and ethnic variations. Covering new developments such as the impact of email on language and corpus-based grammars, this accessible text has been extensively rewritten and brings the survey of modern English right up to date. It also offers new examples and suggestions for further reading.

This chapter deals with the phonology of English together with a certain degree
of phonetic detail and the essentials of English orthography. Naturally, a
treatment of this length cannot take the place of a textbook in phonetics and
phonology or a manual of spelling. lts aim is rather to present fundamental and
systematic characteristics of, as well as tendencies in, the development of
English pronunciation and to give the principles of English spelling in outline. 4.1
