Course Catalog Description:
The goal of this course is to provide students with a background of the core physical, linguistic, and perceptual concepts related to speech. This course talks about the acoustics of speech as well as the main principles that are used to describe articulation and phonetics. We will examine the aerodynamic and acoustic principles that underlie sound production. The course also covers basics of auditory perception and how computers can be used to analyze and manipulate speech. Through an emphasis on physical analysis grounded in scientific principles, this course satisfies the university's physical sciences with laboratory liberal education requirement.

Class Description:
Introduction to the physics and biology of spoken language; the talker's production of sounds and words; transmission of sound; the listener's perception of what was heard; and computer analysis and synthesis of speech. Lectures will be supported by computer animations that show, in slow motion, rapidly changing dynamic events in acoustics, by on-line computer analysis of speech, and by laboratory sessions. Objectives: 1) Provide students who have a limited physics and biology background with an introduction to the physics and biology of spoken language, a field that is not only interesting, but of considerable social importance because of the dominant role that speech, language, and hearing play in society; and 2) Introduce students to recent technological advances associated with spoken language such as digital signal processing systems and speech recognition techniques. The trek through history will begin with Kratzenstein, who designed the first speech synthesizer in 1179, and end with an examination of the ways in which current research from disciplines such as physics, biology, psychology, linguistics, speech and hearing science, and so forth contributes to our understanding of the physics and biology of spoken language.
