Phonetics in Scotland

At least since the days of Alexander Graham Bell, phonetic research has been at home in Scotland. The academic subject was established here shortly after the Second World War, when a Phonetics department was founded at Edinburgh, and lecturers in Phonetics were appointed at the University of Glasgow. Since then, substantial institutional expansion and decades of extensive collaboration among phoneticians across Scotland have led to important developments in clinical, technological, and pure Phonetics research. This resource is the result of an original collaboration across phoneticians working in Scotland, who also formed the Scottish Consortium to host the 18th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS2015) in Glasgow, 10-14 August 2015.
