Primary Instructor:

Prerequisite to the study of normal and impaired human communication is an understanding of the fundamental principles of the production, acoustics, and perception of speech. Building on students' basic knowledge of speech articulation, this course provides a more in-depth study of speech physiology and production. The course also introduces students to the acoustic theory of speech production. We will study the characteristics of the complex sound waves produced by vocal cord vibration, the filtering properties of the human vocal tract, and the acoustic characteristics of vowels and consonants. We will investigate as well how listeners interpret the input acoustic signal as linguistic information, and will explore aspects of perceptual development.

Throughout, the course will emphasize the dynamic nature of speech. Basic phonetic principles will be reinforced through laboratory work, which will provide training in articulatory dynamics, acoustic analysis, and perceptual testing.
