Acoustic Analysis: Spectrography
Martin J. Ball [+]
This introductory text for speech pathology and therapy students examines normative phonetic aspects and also discusses how these may go wrong and what happens when they do. Correct use of phonetic symbolizations and the importance of adequate transcription in the clinic are stressed, as is the use of instrumental analyses to augment impressionistic descriptions of speech. The book deals with the three main areas of phonetics: articulatory, acoustic, and auditory. This new, third, edition of this prestigious text is completely updated, applying the results of recent research into speech disorders to this indispensable guide for speech pathology and therapy students.
