"The variety of perspectives on the place of speech perception in phonology presented in this volume is impressive...it is highly recommended as a valuable contribution to a library of every phonologist, phonetician, and speech scientist."

Review
"The variety of perspectives on the place of speech perception in phonology presented in this volume is impressive. It IS a meeting of the minds, as Lindblom introduced it, a forum where the difficult topic of speech perception in phonology calls for cooperation of phonologists and phoneticians. This volume shows that such cooperation is not only possible but also enjoyable, as both groups of researches realize the need for each other's insights to discuss and understand the perceptual component of the organization of speech and...
