Abstract:

Brought together in this volume are fourteen studies using a range of modern 
instrumental methods - acoustic and articulatory - to investigate the phonetics 
of several North African and Middle Eastern varieties of Arabic. Topics covered 
include syllable structure, quantity, assimilation, guttural and emphatic 
consonants and their pharyngeal and laryngeal mechanisms, intonation, and 
language acquisition. In addition to presenting new data and new descriptions 
and interpretations, a key aim of the volume is to demonstrate the depth of 
objective analysis that instrumental methods can enable researchers to 
achieve. A special feature of many chapters is the use of more than one type of 
instrumentation to give different perspectives on phonetic properties of Arabic 
speech which have fascinated scholars since medieval times. The volume will 
be of interest to phoneticians, phonologists and Arabic dialectologists, and 
provides a link between traditional qualitative accounts of spoken Arabic and 
modern quantitative methods of instrumental phonetic analysis.
