In this chapter we describe elicitation, recording, and acoustic measurement techniques that we think are appropriate for acoustic field research on clicks. While some of the methodologies and techniques may be applicable to speech sounds more broadly, we focus on acoustic description of clicks because we feel that practical guides to the acoustics of obstruents in general, and clicks in particular, are largely missing from the field-research literature.
