Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Phonetics: Transcription, Production, Acoustics, and Perception is a comprehensive introduction to the study of speech and sound. The authors expertly guide readers through major issues in the field, including:

  • Phonetic transcription: how the sounds of speech are written

  • Speech production: how sounds are produced

  • Acoustics: speech sounds and their acoustic characteristics

  • Speech perception: how speech is perceived by listeners

The textbook also offers uniquely thorough coverage of related relevant areas, including vocal fold vibration and the working of the ear, creating an engagingly flexible work for instructors. Exercises at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice, and a companion website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/phonetics offers a range of sound files that vividly illustrate the text.

Reetz and Jongman have created a work which designed for undergraduates in linguistics as well as students in related fields like speech sciences and applied linguistics.

Synopsis:

Phonetics: Transcription, Production, Acoustics, and Perception offers a comprehensive guide to the study of speech and sound. Written in a clear and concise style by two of the field's leading scholars, Phonetics is an essential textbook for students of phonetics and speech science, as well as anyone in related fields seeking an introduction to the complete range of mechanisms of speech. Unlike many other texts, Phonetics delves deeply into:

* Phonetic transcription: how the sounds of speech are written down

* Speech production: how sounds are produced

* Acoustics: speech sounds and their acoustic characteristics

* Speech perception: how speech is perceived by listeners

As it explores the entire range of human speech, Phonetics is informed throughout by the latest research in this rapidly changing field. A companion website is available at www.blackwellpublishing.com/phonetics, providing exercises for each chapter, as well as an array of sound files to lead students to an in-depth understanding of the field of phonetics.

Synopsis:

Companion website, featuring additional resources such as sound files, can be found here: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/phonetics/
