Description: An introductory text on speech acoustics with a primary focus on American English. The second edition includes new information on acoustic theory, methods of acoustic analysis, acoustic properties of vowels and consonants, acoustic correlates of speaker variables and suprasegmentals, and speech synthesis. The authors are a speech pathologist (Kent) and linguist (Read) at the U. of Wisconsin-Madison. The text assumes familiarity with elementary acoustic concepts such as waveforms, spectra, resonance, and decibels. c. Book News Inc.
