Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Coarticulation
Edited By: William J Hardcastle
Nigel Hewlett

Coarticulation means the overlapping gestures that occur during the
pronunciation of any sequence of speech sounds. This topic in the science
of phonetics provides a challenge to speech production theory as well as to
various projects in the field of speech technology, including that of
building a natural sounding speech synthesizer. The eighteen chapters in
this book cover the experimental techniques used for investigating the
phenomenon, the experimental findings to date, and the theoretical background.
