Book Information


Title: Phonetic Interpretation
Subtitle: Papers in Laboratory Phonology VI
Edited By: John Local
Richard Ogden
Rosalind Temple

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

First published in 2003, Phonetic Interpretation presents innovative work
from four core areas: phonological representations and the lexicon,
phonetic interpretation and phrasal structure, phonetic interpretation and
syllable structure, and phonology and natural speech production. Written by
major figures in the fields of phonetics, phonology and speech perception,
the chapters in this volume use a wide range of laboratory and instrumental
techniques to analyse the production and perception of speech, their aim
being to explore the relationship between the sounds of speech and the
linguistic organisation that lies behind that. The chapters present
evidence of the lively intellectual engagement of laboratory phonology
practitioners with the complexities and richness of human language. The
book continues the tradition of the series, Papers in Laboratory Phonology,
by bringing linguistic theory to bear on an essential problem of
linguistics: the relationship between mental models and the physical nature
of speech.
