Abstract and Keywords

The aim of the chapter is twofold: presenting the different types of data that are used to carry research in phonetics and phonology, and giving some concrete examples of corpus-based research in phonetics and phonology. Despite the fact that both domains of linguistics do have a very tight relationship to data, since their objectives require a systematic study of sound patterning, the types of data they used may vary greatly, ranging from acoustic to articulatory data. Among the acoustic data, it is argued that a distinction has to be made between experimental or laboratory data on the one hand and naturally produced data on the other, even though these two types of data are complementary, and crucial to research in phonetics and phonology. As for the use of naturally produced data in phonology and phonetics, it is shown through some concrete examples (the analysis of liaison in French, the distribution of pauses in specific speech style) that these data can shed new light on the analysis of phenomena that have already been explored.

Keywords: phonetics, methods, symbolic representation, articulatory data, acoustic data
