A completed introduction to experimental phonetics

Description

The main goal of this workshop is to offer participants both the knowledge and the experience needed to make independent use of the equipment and software which is used in experimental phonetics.

Course objectives

Attention is paid to the underlying principles, so that the equipment and software can be used in a creative yet scientifically correct way. The possibilities of adding functions to the software by means of (simple) scripts are also addressed. Finally, students are trained to find and remove the cause of common problems in a structured way.
