While the major discussion is articulatory, speech acoustics are also examined. Illustrations of sample spectrograms appear in tandem with the more traditional articulatory drawings.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Phonetics for Communication Disorders is a tour de force. Drawing on their combined breath-taking expertise in the area, Professors Ball and Müller provide an account that solidly integrates the latest knowledge on the phonetics of disordered speech with clinically applied techniques for analysis. The text will initiate new students into core aspects of speech production and variation, but it is far from merely an introductory work. Phonetics for Communication Disorders is set to become one of those rare books which students of speech will retain, consult, and wholeheartedly trust throughout their subsequent professional careers."
—Joan Rahilly
