Phonological Priming in Picture Naming of Young Children Who Stutter
- Phonological Neighborhood and Word Frequency Effects in the Stuttered Disfluencies of Children Who Stutter. Anderson, Julie D. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2007, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p229
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine (a) the role of neighborhood density (number of words that are phonologically similar to a target word) and frequency variables on the stuttering-like disfluencies of preschool children who stutter, and (b) whether these variables have an effect...
- VOWEL DURATION IN WHISPERED AND IN NORMAL SPEECH. Sharf, Donald J. // Language & Speech;Apr-Jun64, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p89
Measures vowel duration in whispered and in normal speech. Duration of whispered vowels; Assessment of the degree of mouth opening; Explanation of vowel duration variations in terms of language structure and the dynamic properties of the speech mechanism.
- Correlates of Phonological Awareness in Preschoolers With Speech Sound Disorders. Rvachew, Susan; Grawburg, Meghann // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2006, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p74
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among variables that may contribute to poor phonological awareness (PA) skills in preschool-aged children with speech sound disorders (SSD). Method: Ninety-five 4- and 5-year-old children with SSD were assessed during the spring...
- Phonological attrition and the perception of geminate consonants in the Lucchese community of San Francisco (CA). Celata, Chiara; Cancila, Jessica // International Journal of Bilingualism;Jun2010, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p185
Two perceptual tests, designed to investigate the discrimination of the singleton/geminate consonant contrast, were submitted to bilingual English-Lucchese immigrants in the USA, and monolingual Lucchese subjects. The study has two major goals. The first goal is to add a muchneeded empirical...
- ON WORD-INITIAL VOICING: CONVERGING SOURCES OF EVIDENCE IN PHONOLOGICALLY DISORDERED SPEECH. Gierut, Judith A.; Dinnsen, Daniel A. // Language & Speech;Apr-Jun86, Vol. 29 Issue 2, p97
Examines the implications for the clinical assessment and treatment of children with phonological disordered speech. Characteristics of two children's disordered phonological systems; Ability to produce systematic phonetic distinctions among sounds for the purpose of marking phonological...
- The Effect of Phonological Neighborhood Density on Vowel Articulation. Munson, Benjamin; Solomon, Nancy Pearl // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2004, Vol. 47 Issue 5, p1048
Recent literature suggests that phonological neighborhood density and word frequency can affect speech production, in addition to the well-documented effects that they have on speech perception. This article describes 2 experiments that examined how phonological neighborhood density influences...
- CATEGORIAL RESPONSES TO SYNTHETIC VOCALIC STIMULI BY SPEAKERS OF VARIOUS LANGUAGES. Scholes, Robert J. // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec67, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p252
Focuses on the results of presenting native speakers of thirteen different languages. Relevance of sound to the vowel sounds of the native language; Phonetic types of phonemes; Freedom from non-linguistic factors present in speech production.
- CROSSLANGUAGE DIFFERENCES IN TONE PERCEPTION: A MULTIDIMENSIONAL SCALING INVESTIGATION. Gandour, Jackson T.; Harshman, Richard A. // Language & Speech;Jan-Mar78, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p1
Reports on findings of a study of crosslanguage differences in tone perception. Study method; Dimensions underlying the perception of linguistic time; Extent of an individual's language background that influence perception; Results of discriminant and regressional analysis.
- SOME NOTES ON THE PHYSIOLOGY OF SPEECH PRODUCTION. Sawashima, Masayuki // Language & Speech;Jan-Mar80, Vol. 23 Issue 1, p31
This article discusses the point of view of the physiology of the speech production mechanism. Concerning the problem of the Laryngeal adjustments for the voicing distinction, fairly clear physiological evidence has been obtained. The basic features of laryngeal movements for the voiced v....
