Speech-Communication: Theory and Models.
Smith, Raymond G.
This volume, designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, addresses the research needs of behavioral scientists interested in various facets of speech-communication and provides a theoretical point of departure for investigating speech as a behavioral science. Chapters 1-7 provide the background and strategy for the formulation of the theoretical statement of the book by presenting an overview of scientific inquiry, examples of research models, types of cognitive structures, and the symbols and various existing theories used in speech communication research. In an attempt to add a new dimension to this area, chapters 8-13 explore the correspondence between speech-communication and behavioral science by presenting various hypotheses, models, and experiments. An extensive bibliography on language, communication, learning theory, and measurement is included. (JM)
