This is a workbook for students a student who was confused as all get out about Phonetics, but after years of practice, decided to help make life easier for you. Good to be you, right? Lucky…
Be forewarned: this is full of terrible puns, memes, lots of TMLIF moments and a ton of stupid sounding exercises. Yes, let’s admitted it, but it works.
For those of you who were curious about the cover photo (though maybe you recognized it), it’s designed after a beer company’s India Pale Ale (IPA) logo. Right off the bat you get into the jokes. Be prepared.
