Overview[edit]

This document is intended to act as a teaching tutorial for sound terminology, theory and practice, across multiple disciplines, but focusing on acoustics, psychoacoustics, environmental acoustics, electroacoustics, speech acoustics, audiology, noise and soundscape studies. In many cases, we draw comparisons between these disciplines and attempt to explain their basic models and how they differ, beginning with the Introductory module.

The Tutorial is divided into a number of modules which are designed to cover a particular topic similar to a lab-based class or a set of studio demos. They are divided into an Acoustic set and an Electroacoustic set. Subtopics in each module can be accessed separately by a link in the series A, B, C, etc.

Interdisciplinary Thematic Search Engine[edit]

The subject matter of this document is organized according to various themes, the first five of which are traced through various subdisciplines, each of which treats the theme differently. The relevant terms for each theme and each discipline are grouped together. The themes are:

Analytical Dimensions of Sound[edit]

Magnitude[edit]

Vibration[edit]

Levels of Acoustic Interaction[edit]

Sound - Medium Interface[edit]

Sound - Environment Interaction[edit]

Sound - Sound Interaction[edit]

Specific Subdisciplines[edit]

Audiology and Hearing Loss[edit]

Noise Measurement Systems[edit]

Electroacoustic and Tape Studio Terms[edit]

Linguistics and Speech Acoustics[edit]

Communications Theory[edit]

The principal discipline which is the "home" for each term is indicated by an icon, as follows:
