Title: Foundations of Voice Studies
Subtitle: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Voice Production and Perception
Written By: Jody Kreiman
Diana Van Lancker Sidtis
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=0631222979
Description:

Exploring questions of how and why the quality of a person’s voice influences
our perceptions, “Foundations of Voice Studies” provides a comprehensive
introduction to, and analysis of, the multifaceted role that voice quality plays
in our social lives.

Beginning with an approachable and thorough overview of various aspects of
vocal physiology and its control, Kreiman and Sidtis examine the neurological
and sociological contexts for producing and listening to voices. Replete with
fascinating sidebars and discussions of how voices are used in advertising
and media, and legal and forensic issues of identifying voices, they have
written an essential work that unifies the results of their own pioneering
studies with the most current scientific literature. This unique and
interdisciplinary volume on all facets of voice production and its perception is
supported by sound files and additional material, available at
www.wiley.com/go/voicestudies.
