Abstract and Keywords

Experimental phonetics investigates the physical instantiation of speech through study of how speech is produced, how it is perceived, and the nature of the acoustic signal that is transmitted from speaker to listener. This chapter provides an overview of these three foundational areas of experimental phonetics. For each area, the goals of, and major issues for, current theoretical approaches are presented. The investigation of these issues is illustrated through targeted “case studies.” Selected methodological considerations of importance to linguistic analysis are also discussed.

Keywords: acoustic phonetics, speech perception, speech production, coarticulation, phonetic variation, perceptual constancy
