Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book covers the whole range of basic and some more advanced knowledge on acoustic and auditory phonetics by clear descriptions and easy-to-follow explanations... The whole structure and approach make the book satisfying to read and rewarding to use." Phonetica

"This well-thought-out textbook has proved to be invaluable for students who want to know more than the basic elements of acoustic phonetics. The spectrograms provide a good view of a wide range of sounds, and the material on perception and hearing is particularly insightful. Keith Johnson is a leading figure in the field of perceptual phonetics and shows students how good experiments should be done." Peter Ladefoged, University of California, Los Angeles

"The best phonetics textbook I've ever used. Uniquely successful in revealing to beginners the line of reasoning in acoustic modelling." Janet Pierrehumbert, Northwestern University

"An excellent phonetics text for students of linguistic phonetics and speech science. Students encounter clear explanations of the basics of acoustics, digital signal processing, the acoustic theory of speech production, and the accounts it offers for the acoustic properties of basic speech sound types. Professional speech scientists may learn from it too; I did." Carol A. Fowler, Haskins Laboratories
