Summary

Chapter 3 continues the focus on methodological concerns, outlining and demonstrating how typical acoustic analyses proceeds from fieldwork to acoustic measurements and data extraction to analysis. This treatment goes deeper into the nuts and bolts of "doing" sociophonetics, with more hand’s on procedures for the identification, processing and measurement of vowels and sibilants This chapter is intended to introduce readers to and provide the work flow for some basic analyses using common software. The survey of key methods and fundamental terms presented in this and the previous chapter provides a foundation for reading and understanding the approaches used in sociophonetic literature and in exploring the research presented in subsequent chapters.
