The first authoritative, state-of-the-art survey of laboratory phonology

Author Biography

Abigail C. Cohn is Professor of Linguistics at Cornell University. Her research focuses on the relationship between phonology and phonetics and is informed by laboratory phonology approaches.

CÚcile Fougeron is Research Scientist in experimental phonetics at CNRS/University of Paris 3 and co-organizer of LabPhon 10. Her research interests include the segmental manifestation of prosodic organization and the phonetic characteristics of speech disorders.

Marie K. Huffman is Associate Professor of Linguistics at Stony Brook University. Her research focuses on the acoustic analysis of speech, especially its temporal structure.
