A comprehensive introduction to the art and science of clinical transcription.
Clinical Phonetics was written with the belief that the clinical application of phonetics is a specialized branch of the field that requires a particular sensitivity to the challenge of transcribing speech disorders. The three primary strengths of the fourth edition of this text continue to be: authoritative coverage of the phonetics of American English, tested skills teaching in clinical transcription using four hours of audio examples (CDs sold separately), and the discussion of a wealth of clinically-relevant topics throughout the text and numerous appendices. Other notable features of the book are its broad coverage of phonetics, including an overview of the anatomy of speech production; phonetic symbols for consonants, vowels and diphthongs; diacritics for narrow transcription; representing suprasegmentals such as stress pattern; acoustic properties of speech; and dialect. This newly revised edition of Clinical Phonetics preserves the strengths of the earlier editions but offers significant improvements in content and style.

- A concise review of phonetic transcription and phonetic analyses of infant vocalizations gives students a better understanding of phonetic analysis of people at a range of life stages.
- Information on transcription reliability from a clinical perspective presents students with an in-depth look at this important issue in phonetics.
- The inclusion of the PepperFont, a series of freely available fonts for the IBM environment, provides instructors and students with a way to include phonetic characters (including optional diacritic characters) in electronic documents.
Lawrence D. Shriberg, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus of Communicative Disorders and a principal investigator in the Communicative and Cognitive Sciences Group, Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research is centered on genetic and other origins of pediatric speech sound disorders of known and unknown origin.
Raymond D. Kent, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus of Communicative Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research has been primarily in the acoustics and physiology of speech, typical and atypical development of speech in children, and neurogenic communication disorders in children and adults with an emphasis on acoustic analysis and the assessment of intelligibility.
