This book is a thorough study of typological differences in the laryngeal systems of Dutch and English

Voicing in Contrast is a thorough study of typological differences in the laryngeal systems of Dutch and English. Based on a substantial new database of Dutch and English conversational speech by native speakers
of different varieties of Dutch, it examines to what extent native speakers of Dutch acquire English obstruent voicing. A sample of the data is available on a CD-ROM accompanying the book.
