Phonetics, Phonology and Cognition by Jacques Durand
Book DescriptionPhonetics, Phonology, and Cognition explores the cognitive and biological systems involved in speech. It offers challenging findings on the cognitive status of phonological representations and their relationship with phonetic implementations. The book's authors are leading researchers from linguistics and cognitive science. They consider, for example, the type of control required for the implementation of articulatory events and the nature of the loop between auditory and articulatory mechanisms. They show the advances that have already been made on these and other central issues in psycho- and neuro-linguistics now that the operations of the brain can be studied directly and neuroscience is no longer dependent on post-mortem dissection of speech-impaired patients. In its exploration of the mental and physical representation of sound systems, Phonology, Phonetics and Cognition demonstrates the value of phonology in allowing the integration of phonetics and cognition. Its authors are concerned with both the realization of representations in physical structures and the way that linguistic sound structure is linked to language form and mental coding. In sum, this book provides a revealing cross-disciplinary perspective on language, speech, and cognition which will be of value and interest to linguists, cognitive scientists, and speech pathologists.
