NO PHOTOGRAPHS ONLINE
I would like to point out that, to my knowledge, no photographic images of myself are available online. If any picture appears on a webpage as attributed to Luciano Canepari, it either is a case of homonymy or the attribution is incorrect – L. Canepari
canIPA Natural Phonetics – Downloadable PDF files
Here is a list
(updated March 2019) of the books published so far and those under preparation detailing the Natural Phonetics and Tonetics
method and its canIPA
phonetic alphabet, as well as the in-depth analysis of several languages. Some older publications included in the list are still valid in terms of theoretical and technical accuracy but have been superseded by more recent and extended works. Accordingly, the PDFs available on this page should not be intended as an exhaustive anthology, but as a careful selection of what is most useful and updated to approach Natural Phonetics and Tonetics. Alongside monographic PDFs and single chapters from such “vintage” works as A Handbook of Pronunciation
, this page provides quite extensive excerpts from newer handbooks such as our Lincom series
about the pronunciation and accents of individual languages.
A concise presentation of Natural Phonotonetics — And a note on review(er)s
The Internet has made it possible for many to get to know our work, and more than once, that has led to fruitful cooperation and even friendly relationships. In a small number of cases, however, the same unfiltered straightforwardness that makes information so easy to access and share has prompted some to approach Natural Phonotonetics without the necessary prudence and openness. That is why we thought that a word of caution
would be helpful to dissipate any possible source of misunderstanding and, hopefully, encourage both passionate beginners as well as open-minded phoneticians working with the official IPA to appreciate Natural Phonotonetics as much as we do.
A note on the visualization of the dots on our tonograms
The dots on our tonograms should appear as ﬁlled dots (not as empty ones, with only a very thin edge, as reported by some readers). Thus, for a better result, we warmly suggest to look at our PDF's by using professional programs, not only when those ﬁles contain tonograms.
