Osamu Fujimura is renowned for his interest and competence in a wide
variety of subjects ranging from physics, physiology and phonetics to
linguistics and artificial intelligence. Through a fusion of these
disciplines he has shown us new ways of looking into human speech and
language which relate the physical and physiological processes in
phonetics to abstract, higher-level linguistic structure.

Reflecting Osama Fujimura's long-standing interests, the chapters in
this volume provide a wide perspective on the various aspects of
speech production (physical, physiological, syntactic, and information
theoretic) and their relationship to the structure of speech and
language.
