Title: Vowels and Consonants
Subtitle: 3rd Edition
Written By: Peter Ladefoged
Sandra Ferrari Disner
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?1444334298
Description:

Note: This is a copy of a previously published book.

This popular introduction to phonetics describes how languages use a
variety of different sounds, many of them quite unlike any that occur in
well-known languages. Peter Ladefoged rightly earned his reputation as one
of the worlds leading linguists, and students benefitted from his
accessible writing and skill in communicating ideas. The third edition of
his engaging introduction to phonetics has now been fully updated to
reflect the latest trends in the field. It retains Peter Ladefoged's expert
writing and knowledge, and combines them with Sandra Ferrari Disners
essential updates on topics including speech technology. "Vowels and
Consonants" explores a wide range of topics, including the main forces
operating on the sounds of languages; the acoustic, articulatory, and
perceptual components of speech; and the inner workings of the most modern
text-to-speech systems and speech recognition systems in use today. The
third edition is supported by an accompanying website featuring new data,
and even more reproductions of the sounds of a wide variety of languages,
to reinforce learning and bring the descriptions to life, at
