Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: A Field Manual of Acoustic Phonetics
Written By: Joan L.G. Baart
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556712326
Description:

This book, A Field Manual of Acoustic Phonetics, provides a practical and
easy-to-understand introduction to acoustic speech analysis, primarily
aimed at those involved in linguistic analysis and description in the field
and at those preparing for such fieldwork. It explains commonly used
methods for displaying aspects of a speech wave, such as waveform graphs,
spectra, spectrograms, fundamental frequency graphs (pitch graphs), and
intensity graphs. It illustrates how the results of acoustic analysis can
be interpreted and used to improve the objectivity, accuracy and precision
of phonetic descriptions of speech sounds. The book assumes basic knowledge
of articulatory phonetics. It can be used to teach introductory courses in
acoustic phonetics at the undergraduate level.

"Hey, isn't this interesting; it presents a different slant on the same
material I have covered. I don't think it hurts to have two different ways
of looking at things. Some people will find one more helpful than the
other." - The late Peter Ladefoged
