Abstract and Keywords

In the late nineteenth century, the development of the International Phonetic Alphabet and the inception of acoustic analysis together were the starting point for phonetic analysis and interpretation as it is carried out today. From making a record of an utterance using an IPA transcription, to analyzing the vocal fold vibrations in a voiced consonant using speech analysis software, to assessing tongue–palate contact using articulatory tracking devices – the possibilities for transcribing and analyzing spoken language are multitudinous. In this chapter, some of the tools used in modern-day phonetic research, as well as their progress over time, are reviewed.

Keywords: International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), phonetics, sound change, forensics, Australian English
