    British English pronunciation

    Hello.

    Could you please recommend a book that teaches BrE pronunciation and shows the difference between ɪ and i, and between the commas in bold as in /ˌbəʊ ˈtaɪ/ and /ˈtiːtʃə(r)/?

    I can't imagine successfully learning how to hear that distinction from a book.
    I am not a teacher.

    English Pronunciation in Use is a great book and it has audio files too. Many books have CDs but most of them teach American pronunciation.
