Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: A Guide to Speech Production and Perception
Written By: Mark Tatham
Katherine Morton
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748636525
Description:

'An excellent introductory guide to the field of contemporary theoretical
and experimental phonetics.'
Professor Chris Code, University of Exeter

'Encourages students to think about the issues themselves, to understand
why different theories arose and how they have relevance today.'
Dr Mark Huckvale, University College London


What roles do the speaker and the listener play in communication processes?
Providing an overall system view, this innovative textbook explains how
those working in the area think about speech.

Emphasising contextual and environmental perspectives, Tatham and Morton
lead you through classical and modern phonetics alongside discussion of
cognitive and biological aspects of speech. In explaining speech
production-for-perception and the relationship between phonology and
phonetics, this book shows the possible applications (such as language
teaching, clinical practice, and speech technology) and how these are
relevant to other disciplines, including sociolinguistics, cognitive
neuroscience, psychology and speech acoustics.

Key Features
*Definition and Explanation boxes throughout the text to help you
understand key terms and concepts
*Tutorial sections in each chapter provide opportunities for you to expand
or reinforce your learning
*Encourages you to develop understanding of theoretical applications
through explanation of traditional and contemporary theories
*Evaluation sections enable you to compare the pros and cons of competing
theories
