Most treatments of speech deal with descriptions of sounds and how they are made. This book goes further: the idea is to develop a framework for a fully explanatory theory of speech production integrating with speech perception. Emphasis is placed on the difference between static models (primarily descriptive) and dynamic models that attempt to show how the basic linguistics and phonetics are related in an actual human speaker/listener.
'Tatham and Morton have written an interesting book about speech production and perception, summing up many of the major results in the field.' - Peter Ladefoged, Distinguished Professor of Phonetics Emeritus, UCLA, USA
