Description

This book is a detailed examination of the phonetics and phonology of consonant strength, drawing data from parallel acoustic and articulatory studies of English and Spanish, as well as a cross linguistic survey of lenition and fortition.

Reviews

"Lavoie's book provides us with a very thorough and detailed description of the acoustic and articulatory cues to consonant lenition . . . Consonant Strength is a very valuable study of lenition, and it is recommended to researchers and specialists that want to investigate this area." -- Marta Ortega-Llebaria, University of Northern Colorado
