Overview

Destined to become a classic for generations of students (and indispensable for clinicians and scientists), The Speech Sciences represents an comprehensive learning resource on that most uniquely human faculty of talking.
Culminating decades of innovative research and teaching by an acknowledged master of the profession, The Speech Sciences crystallizes into a unified whole, a multidisciplinary subject of broad scope, great richness, and enormous practical importance. It provides the necessary foundations for students who want to be good clinicians and run good institutions.
With text of exceptional lucidity, buttressed by a wealth of didactic illustrations and student exercises, The Speech Sciences will inevitably become an essential teaching tool not only for the communication sciences and disorders but for many other related disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology, social sciences, computer sciences, psychology, human engineering and more.
