Newly revised and expanded, Acoustic and Auditory Phonetics provides readers with an accessible yet rigorous introduction to phonetics and speech sciences. The first chapters introduce basic acoustics, audition, signal processing, and the acoustic theory of speech production. The book then surveys the major classes of sounds, describing them acoustically, auditorily, and perceptually. This second edition includes a new chapter on speech perception and additional sections on digital filtering and cross-linguistic vowel and consonant perception. The successful first edition received high praise, and the enhancements to the second edition make it an even more valuable resource for students.From the Back Cover:
This volume provides an introduction to phonetics and speech science courses.
The first chapters introduce basic acoustics, audition, digital signal processing, and the source filter theory of speech production, while the later chapters survey the major classes of speech sounds describing in detail their acoustic and auditory properties.
Students in linguistic phonetics and speech science will find this a gentle, yet rigorous introduction to some of the more technical aspects of computer speech analysis which are assumed in modern instrumental studies of speech, distinctive feature theory, and the acoustic characterization of speech pathology.
