Use of the Internet in speech science education
Proceedings of the SSGRR 2001 Conference, L'Aquila, Italy, August 6-12, 2001: 4.
Speech communication science is highly multidisciplinary and therefore requires access to a wide variety of materials and specialist knowledge in many different fields such as, linguistics, psychology, anatomy, acoustics, signal processing etc. For obvious reasons, specialist competence in all these fields is not normally found in a single department. The Internet can contribute in many ways to overcome these limitations by allowing access to linguistic resources, tutorials, databases and research tools etc. and thus enhance the quality of speech science education in important ways.
