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.

Title: Speech Production and Language: In Honor of Osamu Fujimura
Edited By: Hiroya Fujisaki
Hajime Hirose
Shigeru Kiritani
Series Title: Speech Research

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.
