"The apparent strategy of the editors is to form a basic, redefined lexicon and this is nicely accomplished. ... Eventually this interesting and thorough experiment reflects the subtle innate heterogeneity of sound, drawing one of the many possible cultural galaxies around it." -- Aurelio Cianciotta * Neural *
"This is an important contribution to the emergent field of sound studies. It will help in both defining the field more fully and in refining its key terms more elaborately." * European Journal of Communication *
"For anyone wanting a substantial, if not comprehensive, introduction to the field, Keywords in Sound is the place to start." -- Philip Vandermeer * Notes *
