Book Information


Title: Coarticulation
Subtitle: Theory, data and techniques
Edited By: William J Hardcastle
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Speech Science and Communication

The variation that a speech sound undergoes under the influence of
neighbouring sounds has acquired the well-established label coarticulation.
The phenomenon of coarticulation has become a central problem in the theory
of speech production. Much experimental work has been directed towards
discovering its characteristics, its extent and its occurrence across
different languages. This book is a major study of coarticulation by a team
of international researchers. It provides a definitive account of the
experimental findings to date, together with discussions of their
implications for modelling the process of speech production. Different
components of the speech production system (larynx, tongue, jaw, etc.)
require different techniques for investigation and a whole section of this
book is devoted to a description of the experimental techniques currently
used. Other chapters offer a theoretically sophisticated discussion of the
implications of coarticulation for the phonology-phonetics interface.
