Clinical Measurement Of Speech & Voice (Speech Science)
Clinical Measurement of Speech & Voice (Speech Science)
This comprehensive book has become an internationally recognized standard reference on measurement of physiological and acoustical aspects of speech and voice. It is specifically written for those without a technical background and includes a wide assortment of observational and measurement techniques. It offers explanations of their theoretical and technical foundations, comparisons of instrumental techniques, and extensive graphics to inform the clinician's choice of appropriate measurement tools. Just as important, this book includes extensive summaries of test results, allowing a particular patient's performance to be assessed in a valid context.
"Books in the Speech Science Series cover the basic and applied sciences of speech, including anatomy and physiology of speech, speech acoustics, the perception of speech, life course issues in speech communication, and the speech technologies. This series eventually will include books written at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels, but the initial books generally are written for the introductory audience. Books at the intermediate and advanced levels will follow as the series continues to develop."
