Vowels and consonants : an introduction to the sounds of languages by Peter Ladefoged( Book )
56 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This superb introduction to phonetics is perfect for anyone who wants to learn about the sounds of languages. Peter Ladefoged, one of the world's leading phoneticians, describes how languages use a variety of different sounds, many of them quite unlike any that occur in well-known languages. People trill their lips and click their tongues when talking in ways that are amazing to English speakers. Several of these unusual sounds are reproduced on the accompanying CD. The book opens with a brief introduction to the main forces working on the sounds of languages. Ladefoged outlines the acoustic components of speech and demonstrates speech synthesis. Subsequent chapters on computers and speech describe text-to-speech systems, and show how speech recognition systems work. The last part of the book describes the sounds of a wide variety of languages, introducing them to readers largely by means of the CD and by reference to the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet

Let there be words ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What precisely is language, and how did humans acquire it? In an effort to answer those essential questions, this program journeys back to prehistoric times in search of language's origin. But this is not a passive discussion, as Noam Chomsky; Brown University's Philip Lieberman; Johanna Nichols, of U.C. Berkeley; Stanford University's Merritt Ruhlen; professor of anthropology Richard Klein; Nobel physicist Murray Gell-Mann; and others passionately defend their points of view. Additional topics include distinguishing features of human communication and what humankind's first utterances may have been. The early evolution and migration of humans is also considered
