Title: Instrumental Studies in Arabic Phonetics
Edited By: Zeki Majeed Hassan
Barry Heselwood
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/cilt.319
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 319
Description:

Brought together in this volume are fourteen studies using a range of modern
instrumental methods – acoustic and articulatory – to investigate the phonetics
of several North African and Middle Eastern varieties of Arabic. Topics covered
include syllable structure, quantity, assimilation, guttural and emphatic
consonants and their pharyngeal and laryngeal mechanisms, intonation, and
language acquisition. In addition to presenting new data and new descriptions
and interpretations, a key aim of the volume is to demonstrate the depth of
objective analysis that instrumental methods can enable researchers to
achieve. A special feature of many chapters is the use of more than one type of
instrumentation to give different perspectives on phonetic properties of Arabic
speech which have fascinated scholars since medieval times. The volume will
be of interest to phoneticians, phonologists and Arabic dialectologists, and
provides a link between traditional qualitative accounts of spoken Arabic and
modern quantitative methods of instrumental phonetic analysis.
