DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Speech Production and Perception is aimed at advanced students of linguistics and phonetics or those with applications in mind studying or researching phonetics and phonology, psychology, speech technology or language acquisition and pathology. Linguistics and phonetics have established a firm foundation which the authors review critically with a view to developing an extended and integrated model of production and perception usable not just for theoretical work in the core discipline but explicitly for building applications. Such applications are seen as drawing on a common core of material, and as such are able to be compared with one another and hence incorporate the wide range of experience available among practitioners. The book will be useful in courses in these areas as well as in core linguistics.
