Companion Website

Welcome to Plural Publishing's companion website, intended to enhance your use of the text Phonetic Science for Clinical Practice by Kathy J. Jakielski and Christina E. Gildersleeve-Neumann.

About the Book

Phonetic Science for Clinical Practice is designed to serve as an introductory, one-term textbook for undergraduate phonetics courses in communication sciences and disorders. The text begins by introducing the fundamental tool of transcription - the International Phonetic Alphabet - while also presenting the science underlying that set of symbols. The goal of this text is to teach students how to think about the data being transcribed - in other words, how to think like a phonetician.
