Controversy and epistolary mediation in the construction of phonetic knowledge

Touati, Paul LU (2012) FONETIK 2012 In [Host publication title missing] p.105-108
Abstract
As scientific knowledge grows, it often

engenders controversy. The aim of the

particular case of controversy studied here, in

a series of letters exchanged between two

phoneticians, is to capture vacillations of a

discipline (phonetics) and its “actants”

(phoneticians and their equipment), described

at a key moment in the history of the discipline

(an historical “turning point”), i.e. when

phonetic knowledge was still governed by what

one might call a “scientific regime of

uncertainty”.
