A companion to this volume is a CD-ROM called “The Disappearing Sounds of the World’s Languages” that contains multimedia materials presented as a public lecture by Professor Peter Ladefoged of the University of California, Los Angeles on 6th February 2004.

The papers for this volume are written up versions of the workshop presentations; plus two invited papers (by Thieberger, presented as a Departmental Seminar at SOAS, and Nathan and Austin, originally presented at the Australian Linguistic Society Annual Conference, University of Sydney, July 2004).
