Additional Book Details

Phonetic Science for Clinical Practice,is designed to serve as an introductory, one-term textbook for undergraduate phonetics courses in communication sciences and disorders. The text begins by introducing the fundamental tool of transcription - the International Phonetic Alphabet - while also presenting the science underlying that set of symbols. The goal of this text is to teach students how to think about,the data being transcribed - in other words, how to think like a phonetician.

Every chapter begins with Learning Objectives and an Applied Science problem and question - a research- or clinical-based question that can be answered by applying the phonetic science concepts covered in that chapter. By the end of the chapter, students will revisit the question and be asked to solve the problem posed. Students studying communication sciences and disorders and practicing speech-language pathologists or audiologists will be more successful in their clinical work if they understand the science that underlies the tool of transcription. In each chapter there are also several diverse clinical examples to review the application of concepts covered.

Phonetic Science for Clinical Practice,covers exactly what students (and clinical speech-language pathologists and audiologists) need to know to be effective speech-language pathologists and audiologists in any setting where an understanding of speech sounds is needed.
