Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane M Brewer, MA (George Washington University)
Description: This fifth edition of an introductory book on speech science, an update of the 2003 edition, covers acoustics, speech production, and speech acoustics and speech perception.
Purpose: This introduction provides basic information on physiology, acoustics, and perception of speech, information essential to an understanding of advanced courses in speech and hearing. The book meets these objectives by presenting a great deal of information in a straightforward manner.
Audience: It is intended for undergraduates studying speech and hearing science. The authors are well known and respected in this area.
Features: The book covers the basic acoustics needed to understand speech acoustics and speech perception. It begins with an introduction and interesting history. Then a succinct chapter on acoustics provides preparation for what follows. Anatomy and physiology of speech production is followed by resultant acoustic characteristics to tie these concepts together. Anatomy and physiology of the hearing mechanism leads to the discussion of speech perception. Each chapter beings with an interesting quotation and provides a segment on potential clinical applications, thus adding to the interest of this book. Audio illustrations are available on the book's Web site.
Assessment: This is an important basic book in speech and hearing science that has been widely used since the first edition in 1980. This edition is divided into more chapters, making it easier to read. Several new sections have been added to update respiration information and cross language speech perception. This edition also provides clinical application sections, making it a useful update.
