Phonetic Data Analysis : An Introduction to Fieldwork and Instrumental Techniques Paperback

Description

Phonetic Data Analysis examines the procedures involved in describing the sounds of a language and illustrates the basic techniques of experimental phonetics, most of them requiring little more than a tape recorder, a video camera, and a computer. * Examines the procedures involved in describing the sounds of a language and illustrates the basic techniques of experimental phonetics. * Written by Peter Ladefoged, one of the world's leading phoneticians. * Enables readers to work with a speaker in class or go out into the field and make their own discoveries about how the sounds of a language are made. * Provides full descriptions of techniques that are readily available and do not require the resources of a major phonetics laboratory. * Includes enlightening comments throughout about Ladefoged's own fieldwork experiences.
