VISIBLE SPEECH.
POTTER, RALPH K.; AND OTHERS
A CORRECTED REPUBLICATION OF THE 1947 EDITION, THE BOOK DESCRIBES A FORM OF VISIBLE SPEECH OBTAINED BY THE RECORDING OF AN ANALYSIS OF SPEECH SOMEWHAT SIMILAR TO THE ANALYSIS PERFORMED BY THE EAR. ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO PRESENT AN EXPERIMENTAL TRAINING PROGRAM IN THE READING OF VISIBLE SPEECH AND EXPANDED TO INCLUDE MATERIAL OF INTEREST TO VARIOUS GROUPS WHO MIGHT USE VISIBLE SPEECH, THE TEXT ASSESSES THE DEVELOPMENT AND BASIC PRINCIPLES. HISTORY, THE SOUND SPECTROGRAPH, THE DIRECT TRANSLATOR, THE TRAINING PROGRAM, AND THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF VISIBLE SPEECH (THE NEW ABC'S) ARE REVIEWED. THE LESSON UNITS ON VISIBLE PATTERNS OF AMERICAN SPEECH ARE PROVIDED WITH SUGGESTIONS ON THEIR USE. THE UNITS CONCERN THE PATTERNS AND THE HUBS OF THE VOWELS AND DIPTHONGS AS WELL AS READING STOPS, FRICATIVES, NASALS, AND GLIDES (VOWEL-LIKE SOUNDS), AND VOWELS. EACH LESSON CONTAINS A PROFILE DIAGRAM, AN EXPLANATION OF THE PHYSICAL PRODUCTION OF THE SOUND, POSSIBLE SPELLINGS, SPECTROGRAPHIC PATTERNS, AND WORDS AND SENTENCES FOR DRILL. APPLICATIONS OF VISIBLE SPEECH ARE DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF DEAF INTERESTS, PHONETIC INTERESTS, SPEECH CORRECTION INTERESTS, FOREIGN LANGUAGE INTERESTS, VOCAL MUSIC INTERESTS, AND GENERALITIES AND SPECULATIONS. APPENDIXES PROVIDE A REFERENCE LISTING OF PHONETIC SYMBOLS AND A SUMMARY OF THE PROFILES AND HUB AREAS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY LISTS EIGHT TECHNICAL PUBLICATIONS ON VISIBLE SPEECH. DIAGRAMS, FIGURES, AND VISIBLE SPEECH PATTERNS APPEAR THROUGHOUT THE TEXT.
