Clare Fletcher, J.C. Wells, "Longman Pronunciation Dictionary"
Longman | ISBN: 0582053862 | 112 pages | PDF | 1,2 Mb
This book is a must for everyone seriously interested in English pronunciation. This book shows the pronunciation of what might be typically used by newscasters. However, the idea that a person can learn to speak 'good English' is insulting to millions of people who are very proud of their own regional dialects, which may be considered by non-native speakers of English as 'bad'. If you want to learn to speak 'good' English, hop in a time machine and go back to a time when 'standards' were more severely enforced. (Say, Axis countries in the late thirties.)
