Description - Experimental Approaches to Phonology by Maria-Josep Sole
This wide-ranging survey of experimental methods in phonetics and phonology shows the insights and results provided by different methods of investigation, including laboratory-based, statistical, psycholinguistic, computational-modeling, corpus, and field techniques. The five chapters in the first part of the book examine the recent history and interrelations of theory and method. The remaining 18 chapters are organized into parts devoted to four key current areas of research: phonological universals; phonetic variation and phonological change; maintaining, enhancing, and modeling phonological contrasts; and phonological knowledge. The book provides fresh insights into the findings and theoretical advances that emerge from experimental investigation of phonological structure and phonological knowledge, as well as critical perspectives on experimental methods in the perception, production, and modeling of speech. This book will be a valuable asset for all researchers into the sound structure of language, including scholars and advanced students of phonetics, phonology, speech science, psycholinguistics, and applied linguistics.

She has published on speech production, the articulatory and perceptual basis of sound change, cross-linguistic phonological patterns, and the phonetics-phonology interface. She has published in leading scientific journals such as Journal of Phonetics and Language and Speech, and has contributed chapters to the Papers in Laboratory Phonology series. Patrice Speeter Beddor is Professor of Linguistics and currently Chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Michigan. Her primary research interests are in the areas of speech perception, coarticulation, and the phonetic factors underlying sound change, and her major recent publications focus on the intersection of these areas of inquiry. Manjari Ohala is Professor, and currently Interim Chair of, the Departments of Linguistics and Language Development at San Jose State University.
