“This is an important book, which does much to make accessible the current state of knowledge in an increasingly significant discipline.” Times Higher Education Supplement

“The editors are to be congratulated on putting together a very useful book. They have selected topics that represent the wide-ranging interests of phoneticians, invited recognised experts to write on these topics, and coordinated the contributions so that the volume is a coherant whole. This book belongs on the shelf of any serious phonetician, and linguists in general should be aware that is it available to provide a source of recent informantion about most areas of phonetic research.” Frances Ingemann, University of Kansas

“The previous criticisms not withstanding, The Handbook of Phonetic Sciences is a most welcome and needed reference to this very active field. It should prove an invaluable aid to graduate students starting research projects, to active investigators who are planning to extend their research to a new area in the field, and as a general reference for professionals in the many areas that are now part of the broadly defined phonetic sciences. It will certainly not gather dust on this reviewers bookshelf.” H. T Bunnell, University of Delaware
