About the Authors
  • Coarticulation means the overlapping gestures that occur during the pronunciation of any sequence of speech sounds. This topic in the science of phonetics provides a challenge to speech production theory as well as to various projects in the field of speech technology, including that of building a natural sounding speech synthesizer. The eighteen chapters in this book cover the experimental techniques used for investigating the phenomenon, the experimental findings to date, and the theoretical background.

    • Cross-language approach - considers coarticulation in a number of European and non-European languages
    • Comprehensive in scope, examining aspects of coarticulation in all the motor sub-systems of speech
    • Combines theoretical and experimental approaches with a major section on instrumental techniques for recording and measuring details of coarticulation
