Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 21
Description:

No sound class requires so much basic knowledge of phonology, acoustics,
aerodynamics, and speech production as obstruents (turbulent sounds) do.
This book is intended to bridge a gap by introducing the reader to the
world of obstruents from a multidisciplinary perspective. It starts with a
review of typological processes, continues with various contributions to
the phonetics-phonology interface, explains the realization of specific
turbulent sounds in endangered languages, and finishes with surveys of
obstruents from a sociophonetic, physical and pathological perspective.
