Clinical Phonetics, Third Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to the art and science of clinical transcription.

The three primary strengths of Clinical Phonetics continue to be: a) authoritative coverage of the phonetics of American English, b) tested skills teaching in clinical transcription using four hours of audio examples, and c) discussion of a wealth of clinically-relevant topics throughout the text and numerous appendices.

For more than 20 years, Clinical Phonetics has been the text of choice for instructors who want their students to acquire both the academic content and the transcription skills required for responsible clinical decision making.

The third edition retains all of the materials that allow students to reach these objectives, and enhances content and format to make the learning experience even more accessible for instructors and students.
