The Handbook of Speech Production provides a state-of-the-art survey of the interdisciplinary field of speech production. Twenty-four chapters from leading international researchers, representing abroad range of academic backgrounds including otolaryngology, information sciences, and linguistics, cover key areas of research in this burgeoning area of study. The contributions bring together behavioral, clinical, computational, developmental, and neuropsychological perspectives on speech production with an emphasis on kinematics, control, and planning in production. The work is divided into five sections: The Speech Mechanism, Coordination and Multimodal Speech, Speech Motor Control, Sequencing and Planning, and Language Factors (which includes issues such as understudied languages, language acquisition, and developmental aspects). This structure showcases the broad spectrum of research in speech production and the advances in both research methodology and theoretical modeling. The Handbook is an ideal resource for both advanced students and researchers interested in exploring cutting-edge research which complements existing work in speech perception and enhances our understanding of how speech works.
