The Phonetic English Joke Book 1 is a collection of 100 English jokes written in phonetic script - followed by a version in English. The book is ideal for anyone with an interest in phonetic script and a good sense of humour. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you can learn to read phonetic script - and do so in an enjoyable way. The book has been transcribed in British English which may be an added novelty for American readers.
All money raised from the sale of the book will go to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders).
