An accessible introduction to the phonetic analysis of speech corpora, this workbook-style text provides an extensive set of exercises to help readers develop the necessary skills to design and carry out experiments in speech research.

  • Offers the first step-by-step treatment of advanced techniques in experimental phonetics using speech corpora and downloadable software, including the R programming language
  • Introduces methods of analyzing phonetically-labelled speech corpora, with the goal of testing hypotheses that often arise in experimental phonetics and laboratory phonology
  • Incorporates an extensive set of exercises and answers to reinforce the techniques introduced
  • Accessibly written with easy-to-follow computer commands and spectrograms of speech
  • Companion website at www.wiley.com/go/harrington, which includes illustrations, video tutorials, appendices, and downloadable speech corpora for testing purposes.
  • Discusses techniques in digital speech processing and in structuring and querying annotations from speech corpora
  • Includes substantial coverage of analysis, including measuring gestural synchronization using EMA, the acoustics of vowels, consonant overlap using EPG, spectral analysis of fricatives and obstruents, and the probabilistic classification of acoustic speech data

From the Back Cover:

The Phonetic Analysis of Speech Corpora introduces methods of analyzing phonetically-labelled speech corpora, with the goal of testing hypotheses that often arise in experimental phonetics and laboratory phonology. The book begins by discussing some of the techniques in digital speech processing and in structuring and querying annotations from speech corpora. The second half of the book focuses on analysis, including measuring gestural synchronization using electromagnetic articulometry (EMA), the acoustics of vowels, consonant overlap using electropalatography (EPG), spectral analysis of fricatives and obstruents, and the probabilistic classification of acoustic speech data.

Each chapter has an extensive set of exercises, with answers to reinforce the techniques introduced. An overview of the necessary software tools, including the R programming language, enables the reader to duplicate the stages of analysis computationally. Clearly laid out, with easy-to-follow computer commands, spectrograms of speech corpora, and a companion website with more illustrations and downloadable speech corpora for testing purposes, this book is a complete resource for the research increasingly conducted in phonetics.

About the Author:

Jonathan Harrington is Professor of the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing (IPS), University of Munich, Germany. His recent research has primarily focused on modelling the acoustic and perceptual mechanisms of sound change. He is co-editor of Speech Production: Models, Phonetic Processes, and Techniques (with Marija Tabain, 2006) and Techniques in Speech Acoustics (with Steve Cassidy, 1999).
