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: Acoustic and Auditory Phonetics
Written By: Keith Johnson

This volume provides an introduction to phonetics and speech science courses.

The first chapters introduce basic acoustics, audition, digital signal
processing, and the source filter theory of speech production, while the
later chapters survey the major classes of speech sounds describing in
detail their acoustic and auditory properties.

Students in linguistic phonetics and speech science will find this a
gentle, yet rigorous introduction to some of the more technical aspects of
computer speech analysis which are assumed in modern instrumental studies
of speech, distinctive feature theory, and the acoustic characterization of
speech pathology.
