Clipping loud peaks

Hi,
I have a recorded list of words uttered by a speaker. Apparently, the speaker has gotten too close to the microphone at times, and as a result many words contain a peak (in the waveform plot) with a very large amplitude that sounds a bit like a loud stop release (this often happened with fricatives, though). Is there a way to clip such peaks without affecting the overall quality of the recording?

Thanks,
Chen
