Title: Experimental Approaches to Phonology
Edited By: PatriceSpeeterBeddor
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199296828
Description:

This wide-ranging survey of experimental methods in phonetics and phonology
shows the insights and results provided by different methods of
investigation, including laboratory-based, statistical, psycholinguistic,
computational-modeling, corpus, and field techniques. The five chapters in
the first part of the book examine the recent history and interrelations of
theory and method. The remaining 18 chapters are organized into parts
devoted to four key current areas of research: phonological universals;
phonetic variation and phonological change; maintaining, enhancing, and
modeling phonological contrasts; and phonological knowledge. The book
provides fresh insights into the findings and theoretical advances that
emerge from experimental investigation of phonological structure and
phonological knowledge, as well as critical perspectives on experimental
methods in the perception, production, and modeling of speech.
