    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2007; US$ 34.17

    This is a practical guide to all aspects of linguistic fieldwork.

  • Speech Rate, Pause and Sociolinguistic Variationby T. Kendall

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2013; US$ 84.96

    This book provides a fascinating account of the psycholinguistic and social factors behind variation in speech timing in US English. With detailed discussions of its methods and data, it also acts as a valuable model for conducting corpus (socio)phonetic research. more...

  • Migration, Accommodation and Language Changeby B. Anderson

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2008; US$ 102.53

    This work marries qualitative ethnographic methods to quantitative acoustic methods.

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2006; US$ 122.07

    This study of word frequency effects on sound change provides a resolution of the Neogrammarian controversy. Betty S.

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2006; US$ 39.06

    Phonology in Context takes a fresh look at phonology in a range of real-world contexts that go beyond traditional concerns and challenge existing assumptions and practices. It brings together research and theory from a range of research areas to suggest new directions for the field. more...

  • Frageintonation im Deutschenby Jan Michalsky

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 114.99

    Die Studie untersucht sowohl die phonologischen als auch die häufig vernachlässigten phonetischen Aspekte der Intonation von Fragen im Deutschen und diskutiert die Funktion beider Ebenen getrennt. Eine ausgiebige Betrachtung des Forschungsstandes macht deutlich, dass entgegen häufiger Generalisierungen weder der finale Anstieg noch generell ein Merkmal... more...

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 114.99

    In this book, some of today?s leading neurolinguists and psycholinguists provide insight into the nature of phonological processing using behavioural measures, computational modeling, EEG and fMRI. The essays cover a range of topics including categorization, acoustic variability and invariance, underspecification, talker-specificity and machine learning,... more...

  • Phonology in Perceptionby Paul Boersma; Silke Hamann

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 173.73

    The book consists of nine chapters dealing with the interaction of speech perception and phonology.
