Wikipedia is a surprisingly good source for matters linguistic—there’s been a concerted effort on the part of linguists to improve and maintain the offerings. As such, Wikipedia makes a good first stop for research on many matters phonetic and phonological. Though there are countless articles that may be of use and interest, we have compiled a Wikipedia ‘book’ of a small selection of such articles.
