The Handbook of Speech Production is the first reference work to provide an overview of this burgeoning area of study. Twenty-four chapters written by an international team of authors examine issues in speech planning, motor control, the physical aspects of speech production, and external factors that impact speech production.

  • Contributions bring together behavioral, clinical, computational, developmental, and neuropsychological perspectives on speech production to create a rich and truly interdisciplinary resource
  • Offers a novel and timely contribution to the literature and showcases a broad spectrum of research in speech production, methodological advances, and modeling
  • Coverage of planning, motor control, articulatory coordination, the speech mechanism, and the effect of language on production processes
