Focus on English Phonetics is the third collection of papers created by scholars gathered around the Belgrade International Meeting of English Phoneticians, started in 2008 by Professor Biljana Cubrovic of the Faculty of Philology at the University of Belgrade. After Ta(l)king English Phonetics Across Frontiers (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2009) and Exploring English Phonetics (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2012), this collection represents a further step in the same direction. As with the preceding books, this volume aims to bring together researchers in the rich field of English phonetics, and provide them with a forum for exchanging ideas and research experience. The 18 contributors to this volume come from different linguistic and academic backgrounds, and from nine different countries. As a result, the volume reflects the authors' diversity by both its breadth and tenor. The topics discussed, the research approaches used, and the variety of theoretical, applied and experimental aspects of phonetic investigations all speak of this diversity, a very desirable quality in any field of research.
