ISPhS is an international society serving phoneticians from all over the world. While most of our members are phoneticians, many also work in related fields, like linguistics, phonology, physics, the speech sciences. In short, ISPhS serves all areas of the communication sciences. Since its establishment in 1938, the goal of the Society is to foster and develop our discipline in all parts of the world.
This website offers you detailed information about our goals, our history, and the structure of the society. In addition, it gives you the opportunity to access additional information about our activities. If you are interested in meeting people working in phonetics or related areas, please come and visit the ISPhS website -- or even better: become a member of ISPhS!
Do not forget to take a look at the Phonetician, the official bulletin of ISPhS. You can download a full free copy of the current volume!
