In a recent Perspectives article, Buder (2005)  presented an introduction to the acoustic properties of nasals. That article provided the reader with an introduction to the terminology necessary to make sense of the technical literature on nasals and nasality. It is hoped that the present article will complement Buder’s contribution, covering some of the same terminological territory, but from a practical, hands-on, perspective. In the following, instrumental techniques for the acoustic analysis of nasal and nasalized segments are illustrated. The theoretical poles and zeros associated with nasal coupling that were so helpfully and succinctly described by Buder are shown here in their even more daunting acoustic reality.
