This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of research in laboratory phonology. Laboratory phonology denotes a research perspective, not a specific theory: it represents a broad community of scholars dedicated to bringing interdisciplinary experimental approaches and methods to bear on howspoken language is structured, learned and used; it draws on a wide range of tools and concepts from cognitive and natural sciences. This book describes the investigative approaches, disciplinary perspectives, and methods deployed in laboratory phonology, and highlights the most promising areas ofcurrent research. Part one introduces the history, nature, and aims of laboratory phonology. The remaining four parts cover central issues in research done within this perspective, as well as methodological resources used for investigating these issues. Contributions to this volume address how laboratory phonologyapproaches have provided insight into human speech and language structure and how theoretical questions and methodologies are intertwined. This Handbook, the first specifically dedicated to the laboratory phonology approach, builds on the foundation of knowledge amassed in linguistics, speechresearch and allied disciplines. With the varied interdisciplinary contributions collected, the Handbook advances work in this vibrant field.
Abigail C. Cohn is Professor of Linguistics at Cornell University. Her research addresses the relationship between phonology and phonetics and is informed by laboratory phonology approaches. Her published work includes articles in Phonology and a number of edited volumes. Cecile Fougeron is Research Scientist in experimental phonetics...
