Turbulent Sounds

An Interdisciplinary Guide

Edited by: Susanne Fuchs, Martine Toda and Marzena Zygis
No sound class requires so much basic knowledge of phonology, acoustics, aerodynamics, and speech production as obstruents (turbulent sounds) do. This book is intended to bridge a gap by introducing the reader to the world of obstruents from a multidisciplinary perspective. It starts with a review of typological processes, continues with various contributions to the phonetics-phonology interface, explains the realization of specific turbulent sounds in endangered languages, and finishes with surveys of obstruents from a sociophonetic, physical and pathological perspective.

"The authors represented in this volume have made a clearly valuable contribution to the study of obstruents from all angles, and so, in marshalling the authors' diverse efforts into a coherent whole, have the editors."Daniel Currie Hall in: Linguist List 22.247
