Technology and Phonetics
2013 (English)In: The Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics / [ed] Chapelle, C., Wiley Blackwell , 2013Chapter in book (Refereed)
Sound cannot be studied methodically unless it can be captured in some way, and so from the phonograph to the tape recorder to the computer, the development of new technologies has facilitated the study of phonetics. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine studying phonetics without technology. Other entries in this encyclopedia discuss the topics of acoustic phonetics, speech analysis software, automatic speech recognition, text-to-speech synthesis, and computer-assisted pronunciation teaching. This entry will thus simply provide an overview of the position of technology in phonetics.
