The Reading Lists

! Work in progress… ! The below list is separated into sub-lists by category. I’m working through one category at a time, starting with Testing & Assessment, followed by Phonology.

A hyperlink means there is a relevant post to this book on this site, as it’s a book that I have read.

R = Recommended minimum reading; an item NOT marked with ‘R’ might purely be because I haven’t read that title rather than it not being useful.
