Book Information


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

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.
