THE ROLE OF SPEECH PERCEPTION IN PHONOLOGY

Edited by
Elizabeth V. Hume
The Ohio State University, Columbus, U.S.A.

Keith Johnson
The Ohio State University, Columbus, U.S.A.

Do human auditory perceptual abilities shape language sound
structures? If so, what aspects of phonology may be driven by
perception, and how should perceptually driven processes be captured
in linguistic theory? These and similar questions have come to the
forefront of linguistic research in the past decade because the
technology used in speech perception research has become much more
widely available and portable and because developments in
constraint-based theories of phonology have made it possible to
incorporate "perceptual constraints" into linguistic grammars. THE
ROLE OF SPEECH PERCEPTION IN PHONOLOGY is a collection of
authoritative articles on the role of speech perception in phonology
by leading phonologists, phoneticians, and cognitive
psychologists. Contributing authors include:

Dr. Elizabeth Hume is currently an associate professor of linguistics
at The Ohio State University. She has also been a visiting research
fellow at the University of Utrecht and a faculty member of the LSA
Summer Institute of Linguistics (1993, 2003). Her research in
phonology includes work on feature theory, consonant/vowel
interaction, metathesis, and the representation of geminate
consonants.

Dr. Keith Johnson is currently an associate professor of linguistics

HANDBOOK OF GENETIC COMMUNICATIVE DISORDERS

Edited by
Sanford E. Gerber
Adjunct professor, Washington State University, Pullman, emeritus
professor, University of California, Santa Barbara, former visiting
professor, Eastern Washington University, Cheney, U.S.A.

FROM THE FOREWORD:
"Without a doubt, the single area in which practicing clinicians lack
current and clinically relevant training and information is genetics,
and more specifically the role of genetics in communicative
disorders. Over the past 15 years, I have noted this to be the case in
my interactions with audiences throughout the United States and around
the world. The question I regularly receive from practicing clinicians
is 'Can you help me find a readable book on genetics, one that
contains information that I can put into practice right away?' Up to
this time, there was no single source I could refer them to. You now
hold the answer in your hands. Clinically relevant, empirically sound,
and eminently readable is how I would describe the information
contained in the Handbook of Genetic Communicative Disorders."
��Louis Rossetti, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh

HANDBOOK OF GENETIC COMMUNICATIVE DISORDERS is the only book to
consider the genetics of communicative disorders from a broad
perspective. It examines genetics, embryology, and epidemiology, along
with the study of hearing, speech, and language disorders. It also
introduces a review of issues relevant to genetic counseling and
ethics. It is a unique and comprehensive work edited by a master
clinician and filled with articles written by contributors who are the
leading experts in their respective disciplines.<br>

ABOUT THE EDITOR:

Dr. Sanford E. Gerber is an adjunct professor of speech and hearing
sciences at Washington State University, Pullman. He is also an
emeritus professor of speech and hearing sciences at the University of
California, Santa Barbara and a former visiting professor in the
department of communication disorders at Eastern Washington
University, Cheney. Dr. Gerber has received a variety of awards over
the years, most notably, a diploma "honoris causa" from the Bohemian
Medical Association J.E. Purkyne, and he is a "correspondiente
extranjero" of the Mexican Society of Audiology and
Phoniatrics. Dr. Gerber is the author or editor of 13 books and more
than 150 journal articles, most of them dealing with communication in
the very youngest people. He has lectured in numerous countries, among
them The Netherlands, England, Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, and
Ecuador.
