This novel book introduces speech and hearing sciences students to the principles of "signal" and "system" analysis. Beginning with an examination of what signals and systems are, the book develops a thorough background from which many of the most important issues in speech and hearing can be tackled. It is the first dedicated text on this subject. It presents techniques for speech and hearing analysis and experiments; contains minimal mathematics in describing a highly technical field; and introductory text for students in speech, hearing and psychology.

Review quote

"I'm happy to recommend this text to any prospective reader-by they student or established worker in the speech and hearing sciences-who seeks a non-mathematical treatment of the elements of signals and systems theory which underpin their subject." -JOURNAL OF SOUND AND VIBRATION "I fully expect it to become a standard for both advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders. At the present time, it has no competition." -Irving Hochberg, CUNY
