This novel book introduces speech and hearing sciences students to the principles of "signal" and "system" analysis. Beginning with an examination of what signals and systems are, the book develops a thorough background from which many of the most important issues in speech and hearing can be tackled. Numerous illustration
* The first dedicated text on this subject
* Presents techniques for speech and hearing analysis and experiments
* Contains minimal mathematics in describing a highly technical field
* An introductory text for students in speech, hearing and psychology

Many people working in the speech and hearing sciences come from non-technical backgrounds, making it difficult for them to master the essential technical underpinnings of the area. This book provides a thorough introduction to the concepts of signals and systems analysis that play a role in the speech and hearing sciences, using only minimal mathematics. Although not an introduction to speech and hearing per se, all of the examples discussed in the text are drawn from relevant areas-primarily theperipheral auditory system and the source-filter theory of speech production. The theoretical principles behind commom instrumentation used (such as tape recorders and sound spectrographs) is also discussed. An informal yet informative style is maintained throughout. Because much of the story is told through some 300 illustrations (all newly prepared specifically for this text), great care has been taken to make them clear and accurate. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter.
This book provides a comprehensive course for the student entirely new to the field, while also providing a reference for the experienced worker. It will be essential for students of audiology, speech therapy, phonetics and psychology.
