From the Back Cover:

Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of The Handbook of Phonetic Sciences provides an authoritative account of the key topics in both theoretical and applied areas of speech communication, written by an international team of scholars and practitioners. 

The Handbook is accessibly structured into five major sections covering: experimental phonetics; biological perspectives; modelling speech production and perception; linguistic phonetics; and speech technology. These sections have been reconceived and re-oriented to create a more streamlined and user-friendly reference tool, whilst keeping the essential features that made the first edition so comprehensive. All contributions have been revised in order to bring them up-to-date with the latest research, and nine entirely new chapters have been added on topics including phonetic notation and sociophonetics, speech technology, and biological perspectives, along with an expanded section on prosody.

Combining new and influential research, along with articulate overviews, this volume offers an unparalleled resource for advanced students and specialists in phonetics, linguistics, speech and language therapy, psychology, and speech technology.
