Overview

Articulatory Phonetics presents a concise and non-technical introduction to the physiological processes involved in producing sounds in human speech.

  • Traces the path of the speech production system through to the point where simple vocal sounds are produced, covering the nervous system, and muscles, respiration, and phonation
  • Introduces more complex anatomical concepts of articulatory phonetics and particular sounds of human speech, including brain anatomy and coarticulation
  • Explores the most current methodologies, measurement tools, and theories in the field
  • Features chapter-by-chapter exercises and a series of original illustrations which take the mystery out of the anatomy, physiology, and measurement techniques relevant to speech research
  • Includes a companion website at www.wiley.com/go/articulatoryphonetics with additional exercises for each chapter and new, easy-to-understand images of the vocal tract and of measurement tools/data for articulatory phonetics teaching and research
  • Password protected instructor’s material includes an answer key for the additional exercises

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“Life has just become less lonely for Acoustic and Auditory Phonetics.  Gick, Wilson & Derrick have given us a marvelous addition to the classroom, providing an authoritative description of speech articulation, an insightful and balanced guide to the theory of cognitive control of speech, and a highly readable introduction to the methods used in articulatory phonetics.  All students of phonetics should study this book!” - Keith Johnson, University of California, Berkeley

“Gick, Wilson, and Derrick offer an engaging, comprehensive introduction to how articulation works and how it is investigated in the laboratory.  This textbook fills an important gap in our training of phoneticians and speech scientists.” - Patrice Beddor, University of Michigan

“A rich yet approachable source of phonetic information, this new text is well structured, well designed, and full of original diagrams.” - James Scobbie, Queen Margaret University
