Cleland, J., Scobbie, J. M. & Zharkova, N. (2016) Editorial: Insights from ultrasound: Enhancing our understanding of clinical phonetics. Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics, 30 (3-5), pp. 171-173.
This is the editorial from the journal Clinical Linguistics and Phonetics, from a Special Issue entitled Insights from Ultrasound. The timing of this special issue was in part inspired by the 6th Ultrafest conference in Edinburgh in 2013, a meeting in which phoneticians, clinicians and engineers working in ultrasound tongue imaging came together. We invited contributions from these and other experts in the field working with ultrasound as a tool for investigating clinical populations; as a biofeedback device in speech therapy; or as a tool for investigating typical speech production, with a view to informing investigations of clinical populations.
