4FOREWORDThe importance of intercultural communication is growing in a globalized and ever‐changingworld. In this context, the role of English as an international language cannot be denied. Theknowledge of English Phonetics, i.e. how particular sounds are produced, their properties, how weperceive speech and what happens to speech sounds when we speak fast, helps us to speak clearlyand understand others correctly, which is of utmost importance, especially in interculturalcontexts.The present resource book is designed as a supplement to Peter Roach’s (2010) textbook EnglishPhonetics and Phonology: A Practical Course and may be used to accompany lecture courses onEnglish Phonetics at university level. It is equally suitable for self‐study and for in‐class situationwith a teacher. Phonetics: Drills and Exercises gives students practice in pronunciation andtranscription of English sounds, enhances their understanding of phonological structures andrules, and improves speaking and listening skills.The resource book consists of 13 units and 7 appendices. Each unit contains the information aboutthe texts to be read on the unit’s topic, a list of key terms, a variety of pronunciation andtranscription exercises, online resources for further practice, and study questions which help torevise the material practiced in the unit.Units 1‐4, 11‐13 and appendices E, F, and G were prepared by Assoc. Prof. Audronė Raškauskienė,whereas units 5‐10 and appendices A, B, C, and D were prepared by Dr. Jurgita Vaičenonienė.The authors extend their gratitude to Lina Kišonytė who contributed the resource book bypainting the mid‐sagittal sections of the human head in Unit 3, Darius Tumšys for pictures in Units5‐7, and Edmundas Unguraitis for the pictorial story in Appendix A.

The English alphabet has 26 letters but in (Standard British) English there areapproximately 44 speech sounds. A set of phonetic symbols called the International Phonetic Alphabet(IPA) is used to represent the basic sounds of spoken languages.

Whenever hisfriends asked him if he would like to go out with them, he would only answer, “I don‘t know.“ Hewould always shirk making a choice. His aunt Helen said to him, "Now look here. No one is goingto care for you if you carry on like this. You have no more mind than a blade of grass." One rainyday, the rats heard a great noise in the loft. The pine rafters were all rotten, so that the barn wasrather unsafe. At last the joists gave way and fell to the ground. The walls shook and all the rats'hair stood on end with fear and horror. "This won't do," said the captain. "I'll send out scouts tosearch for a new home." Within five hours the ten scouts came back and said, "We found a stonehouse where there is room and board for us all. There is a kindly horse named Nelly, a cow, a calf,and a garden with an elm tree." The rats crawled out of their little houses and stood on the floorin a long line. Just then the old one saw Arthur. "Stop," he ordered coarsely. "You are coming, ofcourse?" "I'm not certain," said Arthur, undaunted. "The roof may not come down yet." "Well,"said the angry old rat, "we can't wait for you to join us. Right about face. March!"
