Excerpt from The Mechanism of Speech: Lectures Delivered Before the American Association to Promote, the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf, to Which Is Appended a Paper, Vowel Theories Read Before the National Academy of Arts and Science Illustrated With Charts and Diagrams
These lectures upon the Mechanism of Speech were delivered at the First Summer Meeting of the American Association to Pro mote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf, before an audience com posed largely of persons professionally engaged in the work of teaching Speech to deaf children.
In 1906 these lectures were for the first time collected in book form and reprinted by the Association, chieﬂy for the use of its members, but enough copies were struck oﬂ' to allow of the presenta tion of the work to the general public in the hope that it would prove of interest to a larger circle of readers. This hope was realized and there is now a demand for another edition.
The first edition was printed during the author's absence in Europe, so that he had no Opportunity of revising the proofs; and, unfortunately, in using the unfamiliar type representing Melville Bell's speech-symbols, the printers made quite a number of typo graphical mistakes. In this second edition advantage has been taken of the opportunity to correct these errors.
When the lectures were originally delivered the teachers present were encouraged to ask questions concerning difficulties experienced in imparting the power of articulate speech to deaf children. In this volume the questions and answers have been appended to the lectures, in the hope that the replies may be of assistance to other teachers engaged in this difficult and laborious work.
