Title: Phonetics for Communication Disorders
Written By: Martin J. Ball
Nicole Müller
Description:

This comprehensive textbook offers a basic introduction to phonetics in an
applied systematic presentation that equips the communication disorders
student to deal with the wide range of speech types that will be
encountered in a clinic. While the major discussion is articulatory, speech
acoustics are also examined. Illustrations of sample spectrograms appear in
tandem with the more traditional articulatory drawings. A CD of sound
examples accompanies the textbook.
