This wide-ranging survey of experimental methods in phonetics and phonology shows the insights and results provided by different methods of investigation, including laboratory-based, statistical, psycholinguistic, computational-modeling, corpus, and field techniques. The five chapters in thefirst part of the book examine the recent history and interrelations of theory and method. The remaining 18 chapters are organized into parts devoted to four key current areas of research: phonological universals; phonetic variation and phonological change; maintaining, enhancing, and modelingphonological contrasts; and phonological knowledge. The book provides fresh insights into the findings and theoretical advances that emerge from experimental investigation of phonological structure and phonological knowledge, as well as critical perspectives on experimental methods in theperception, production, and modeling of speech.This book will be a valuable asset for all researchers into the sound structure of language, including scholars and advanced students of phonetics, phonology, speech science, psycholinguistics, and applied linguistics.
Maria-Josep Sole is Professor of English Phonetics and Linguistics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. She has published on speech production, the articulatory and perceptual basis of sound change, cross-linguistic phonological patterns, and the phonetics-phonology interface. She has published in leading scientific journ...
