Overview

This outstanding multi-volume series covers all the major subdisciplines within linguistics today and, when complete, will offer a comprehensive survey of linguistics as a whole.

This volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the key topics of the phonetic sciences. Contributions by many of the leading researchers in the field cover both theoretical and applied areas of speech communication.

There are contributions on experimental phonetics, including aerodynamics of speech, speech signal processing, laboratory techniques and acoustic phonetics, as well as discussions of speech technology applications in areas such as automatic recognition of speech and speakers, and speech synthesis. Following are chapters on the biological foundations of speech and hearing, such as brain functions underlying speech, auditory neural processing, and articulatory processes in speech production.
