Human hearing is exquisitely sensitive, allowing us to hear extremely faint sounds, to follow the sounds of a friend's voice in a loud party, and to appreciate subtle differences between words in the language. This course provides an introduction to the basic physics of sound, the acoustic properties of the sounds of speech, and the mechanisms by which those sounds are perceived by the listener.
