14 editions published in 1996 in English and Italian and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in Clinical Phonetics focuses on important developments in phonetic description.

Some instrumental developments (such as electropalatography), and some transcription developments (such as extIPA symbols), have been spearheaded by clinical phoneticians. The present collection describes and explore

Assessing grammar : the languages of LARSP by Martin J Ball( )

This collection is a resource book for those working with language disordered clients in a range of languages.

Methods in clinical phonetics by Martin J Ball( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is written for the beginning student of communication disorders with a basic understanding of phonetics, or the practising speech-language therapist whose phonetic training may need updating. It introduces the reader to the main areas of phonetics, and the main methods through which the phonetician reduces speech data to a permanent record. The book, then, illustrates the three main approaches to the investigation of spoken language; articulatory, acoustic, and auditory. Further, it describes how impressionistic phonetic transcription through symbolisation differs from instrumental phonetic techniques. For each of these areas of discussion, chapters are provided that examine the general phonetic aspects, followed by chapters that illustrate their application to clinical data. The authors are both phoneticians with experience of investigating both normal and disordered speech through both impressionistic and instrumental means, and this is the first book in this market that describes a whole range of data reduction techniques and illustrates them with data relevant to the student and practitioner of communication disorders
