Reviews

'An excellent resource for students interested in studying phonetic science. It provides an accessible introduction to key topics in the discipline and also functions as an authoritative point of reference for more complex topics in phonetic analysis.' Damien Mooney, University of Bristol
'Excellent and very well structured ... it manages the art of introducing articulatory, acoustic phonetics, and speech perception, in a comprehensive and in-depth yet highly accessible manner.' Ocke-Schwen Bohn, Aarhus Universiteit, Denmark
'A comprehensive and clear introduction to phonetics ... it is impressively broad and up to date - particularly in its coverage of instrumental techniques for analyzing articulatory aspects of speech production.' Matthew Gordon, University of California, Santa Barbara
'This is an excellent, comprehensive overview to the field of phonetics. It provides clear introductions to each subfield of phonetics, including digital signal processing and hearing, and offers a solid background to the study of phonetics.' Melissa Baese-Berk, University of Oregon
