Subject: Phonetics/phonology textbook for undergrads

Dear Linguists,
I am looking for a textbook for an undergraduate class in phonetics and
phonology; preferably, with exercises and accompanying taperecording on
cassette(s) or CD. I'd appreciate recommendations from those who have
used the material recently.

Message 2: lpc re-synthesis

Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2000 09:33:25 -0500 (CDT)
From: peter dennis viechnicki <>
Subject: lpc re-synthesis

Dear Colleagues,

I am searching for a way to re-synthesize speech from LPC parameters, but
with altered formant frequencies. I know this has been accomplished
before by certain researchers, for example Houde and Jordan in their paper
on altered acoustic feedback, but I have been unable to locate any
software or hardware that performs this function. Furthermore, I have
been unable to find a straightforward way of modifying the lpc parameters
by hand, in order to achieve the desired results with the formant
frequencies. Can anyone provide advice or direction for this problem?
Thanks in advance for your help. I will gladly post a summary of
responses to the list.
