3.0 out of 5 stars A technical read 13 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is required reading for my course, but the lecturer confirms that it is more technical than an introduction needs to be and is trying to change the book for next year.

Although the subject is fascinating I find I am not quite able to grasp the reading by myself, but it becomes clearer after my accompanying lecture. If this is a required read for you, try to read others as well to aid your understanding of the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid review of some aspects of phonetics 27 May 2005
By Karen Chung - Published on Amazon.com
"Experimental phonetics", in contrast to "impressionistic phonetics", is defined by the author as phonetic research that uses instruments to record, measure and analyze speech events. This is explained in the first chapter, which I found to be one of the more engaging in the book. If you've read other works on general and acoustic phonetics, e.g. Ladefoged's _A Course in Phonetics_ and _Elements of Acoustic Phonetics_, this book will probably be over 80% review. But different presentations of familiar material are often useful for consolidating existing knowledge. And there are new bits here and there, like information on different VOTs for the different stops. Overall, this is a carefully produced, solid work.
