Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Springer Handbook of Speech Processing
Edited By: Yan Huang
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-3-540-49127-9
Description:

-Authoritative desk reference of one of tomorrow's breakthrough technologies

-Provides quick access to reliable and comprehensive information

-Electronic contents on accompanying CD-ROM

From common consumer products such as cell phones and MP3 players to more
sophisticated projects such as human-machine interfaces and responsive
robots, speech technologies are ubiquitous in 21st century life. Many think
that it is just a matter of time before more applications of the science of
speech become inescapable in our daily life. This handbook is intended to
play a fundamental role in shaping sustainable progress in speech research
and development. A quickly accessible source of application-oriented,
authoritative and comprehensive information about these technologies, it
combines the established knowledge derived from research in such fast
evolving disciplines as Signal Processing and Communications, Acoustics,
Computer Science and Linguistics.

The Springer Handbook of Speech Processing focuses on three categories of
readers: graduate students, professors and active researchers in academia
and research labs, and engineers in industry who need to understand or
implement some specific algorithms for their speech-related products. The
handbook could also be used as a sourcebook for one or more graduate
courses on signal processing for speech and different aspects of speech
processing and applications.

Written for:
Researchers in electrical engineering, applied physics, computer science,
linguistics; development engineers in acoustics, signal processing,
telecommunications
