Abstract:

This book gives a description of all the known ways in which the
sounds of the world's languages differ. In doing so, it provides the
empirical foundations for linguistic phonetics and
phonology. Encapsulating the work of two leading figures in the field,
it will be a standard work of reference for researchers in phonetics
and linguistics for many years to come.


The scope of the book is truly global, with data drawn from nearly 400
languages, many of them investigated at first hand by the authors. A
picture of the full range of possible contrasting phonetic categories
is created by comparing families of similar sounds across many
different languages.

Separate chapters deal with place of articulation, stops, nasals,
fricatives, laterals, rhotics, clicks, vowels, and segments with
multiple articulations. Each chapter is packed with illustrations
documenting the articulatory and acoustic characteristics of the
sounds discussed, and serving to illustrate the application of modern
experimental techniques to descriptive phonetic studies.
