This wide-ranging survey of experimental methods in phonetics and phonologyshows the insights and results provided by different methods ofinvestigation, including laboratory-based, statistical, psycholinguistic,computational-modeling, corpus, and field techniques. The five chapters inthe first part of the book examine the recent history and interrelations oftheory and method. The remaining 18 chapters are organized into partsdevoted to four key current areas of research: phonological universals;phonetic variation and phonological change; maintaining, enhancing, andmodeling phonological contrasts; and phonological knowledge. The bookprovides fresh insights into the findings and theoretical advances thatemerge from experimental investigation of phonological structure andphonological knowledge, as well as critical perspectives on experimentalmethods in the perception, production, and modeling of speech.
