Sociophonetics: a student’s guide provides a practical ‘how-to’ manual that
will give students a clear understanding of the technical and theoretical
advances in acoustic phonetics, speech perception, and recording technology
which is essential for sociolinguistic research.
Balancing theory, practical information and research protocol, this book:
* Covers the key methodological, technical and procedural information
needed to undertake sociophonetic research
* Includes contributions from key academics and ground-breaking researchers
* Incorporates exercises and projects in each chapter
* Has a companion website
(http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415498791/) that provides additional
materials for students and professors, featuring exercises, links to
on-line sources for specific tools and includes a large selection of audio
and video clips.
Sociophonetics is essential reading for graduate students and researchers
with interests in sociophonetics, phonology and for those undertaking
research projects in applied linguistics.
