We present a generalized dispersion equation for shear horizontally polarized acoustic waves in a system of a finite thickness substrate covered by a finite thickness solid layer having a lower shear acoustic speed. The solutions to the equation describe both layer guided Love waves and resonant acoustic plate modes. We identify higher order mode Love waves as continuations from the lowest order acoustic plate mode associated with the previous Love wave mode. Experimental results are presented that confirm the relationship between the multiple Love wave modes and the acoustic plate modes.
