PHONANIUM’S mission

According to Kent & Read (2002, p. 16): “The acoustic signal of speech is of particular interest because it intervenes between the production and perception of speech. That is, the acoustic signal is at once the output of the production system and the input to the processes of perception. Because the acoustic signal of speech encodes linguistic, emotional, and personal information in the act of human communication, it is an important goal to develop effective means for its analysis.”
