Computational Models Of American Speech

by M. Margaret Withgott, Computational Models Of American Speech Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Computational Models Of American Speech book, A new perspective on phonetic variation is achieved in this volume through the construction of a series of models of spoken American English. In the past, computer theorists and programmers investigating pronunciation have often relied on their own knowledge of the language or on limited transcription data. Speech recognition researchers, on the other hand, have drawn on a great deal of data but without examining in detail the information about pronunciation the data contains. The authors combine the best of each approach to develop probabilistic and rule-based computational models of transcription data. An ongoing controversy in studies of phonetic variation is the existence and proper definition of a phonetic unit. The authors argue that assumptions about the units of spoken language are critical to a computational model. Their computational models employ suprasegmental elements such as syllable boundaries, stress, and position in a unit called a metrical foot. The use of such elements in modeling data enables the creation of better computational models for both recognition and synthesis technology. This book should be of interest to speech engineers, linguists, and anyone who wishes to understand symbolic systems of communication.

The Great American Speech

by Stephen Fender, The Great American Speech Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Great American Speech book, The land of the free and home of the brave, America is also the country in which this truth is supposedly self-evident: that we are all equal. It may not seem so at first, but there is a startling gap between these two visions of America, one more evident in today’s fiercely partisan politics that pit free enterprise against social justice. In this fascinating look at America’s most memorable speeches—which have become monuments in national memory—Stephen Fender explores the ways American speechcraft has kept alive a dream of equality and cooperation in the face of economic forces that have favored competition and the pursuit to get ahead. Beginning with the early American settlers and the two contrasting visions they set out—one competitive, the other cooperative—Fender traces the development of the latter through a series of dramatic addresses. He examines the inaugural speeches of early presidents such as John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, moving to Abraham Lincoln’s arguments—at once logical and passionate—for maintaining the Union, and then on to the twentieth century’s great orators, such as John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. He also looks at the notion of the “great American speech” in popular culture, exploring both the usual places—such as movie courtroom scenes—where it pops up, as well as its unexpected ubiquity in adventure films, thrillers, or any story where equality and justice come under threat. Through his exploration of great speeches, Fender paints the picture of two simultaneous and free-standing visions of American identity, offering a sophisticated look at American ideological history.

Professional Issues In Speech Language Pathology And Audiology Fifth Edition

by Melanie W. Hudson, Professional Issues In Speech Language Pathology And Audiology Fifth Edition Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Professional Issues In Speech Language Pathology And Audiology Fifth Edition book, The fifth edition of Professional Issues in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is a singularly comprehensive resource for students in speech-language pathology and audiology as they prepare for their professional careers. It also serves as a timely source of information for both practitioners and faculty, serving as an updated “state of the professions” desk reference. The book is divided into four major sections: overview of the professions; employment issues; setting-specific issues; and working productively.

Chapter authors are recognized subject matter experts, providing a blend of both foundational and cutting-edge information in areas such as evidence-based practice, ethics, finding a job, interprofessional practice, service delivery in healthcare and education, technology, cultural competence, supervision, and leadership. Students reading this book will appreciate how the professions have evolved over time while acquiring a sense of where they are right now as they prepare to enter the professional world. Each of the topics covered in the book will continue to play important roles in the future of audiology and speech-language pathology, providing early career professionals with the requisite knowledge to achieve success in any setting. New to the Fifth Edition: * New coeditor Mark DeRuiter, PhD, MBA, CCC-A, CCC-SLP * 5 new chapters including Professional Accountability (Shelly Chabon and Becky Cornett); Safety in the Workplace (Donna Fisher-Smiley and Cynthia Richburg); Interprofessional Education and Interprofessional Practice (Alex Johnson); Counseling (Michael Flahive); and Advocacy (Tommie Robinson and Janet Deppe) * New authors Tricia Ashby, Bob Augustine, Stacy K.

Acoustics Of American English Speech

by Joseph P. Olive, Acoustics Of American English Speech Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Acoustics Of American English Speech book, This book presents the most contemporary and comprehensive description of the acoustics of the sounds used in American English. Intended to serve as an introductory text for students and professionals interested in acoustic phonetics, linguistics, physics, electrical engineering, and computer science, the authors bring to the subject the points of view of both linguistics and physics. The book uses numerous examples of acoustic spectrograms to show the continuities and variability of natural speech. The book begins by introducing the basic concepts of phonetics, phonology, and linguistics to readers whose background is in physics or engineering and introducing the physics of sound generation and analysis for speech scientists and linguists. The authors then use the tools developed in the first part to examine the characteristics of individual phonemes as well as the changes introduced when individual sounds are combined in speech. Modern applications of speech acoustics, especially speech synthesis and recognition, are also discussed.
