- Speech Perception Abilities of Adults With Dyslexia: Is There Any Evidence for a True Deficit? Hazan, Valerie; Messaoud-Galusi, Souhila; Rosen, Stuart; Nouwens, Suzan; Shakespeare, Bethanie // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Dec2009, Vol. 52 Issue 6, p1510
Purpose: This study investigated whether adults with dyslexia show evidence of a consistent speech perception deficit by testing phoneme categorization and word perception in noise. Method: Seventeen adults with dyslexia and 20 average readers underwent a test battery including standardized...
- ELECTROPALATOGRAPHIC AND SPECTROGRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF ALLOPHONIC VARIANTS OF /l/. Lehman, Mark E.; Swartz, Bradford // Perceptual & Motor Skills;Feb2000, Vol. 90 Issue 1, p47
Investigates prevocalic and postvocalic /l/ in three adult subjects utilizing a combination of electropalatographic and acoustic techniques. Characteristics of prevocalic /l/; Use of models that relate physiological and acoustical aspects of speech to account for observed results.
- Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia During Speech Production. Reilly, Kevin J.; Moore, Christopher A. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2003, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p164
The amplitude of the respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) was investigated during a reading aloud task to determine whether alterations in respiratory control during speech production affect the amplitude of RSA. Changes in RSA amplitude associated with speech were evaluated by comparing RSA...
- Recognition of multiply degraded speech by young and elderly listeners. Gordon-Salant, Sandra; Fitzgibbons, Peter J. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Oct95, Vol. 38 Issue 5, p1150
Investigates the hypothesis that age effects exert an increased influence on speech recognition performance as the number of acoustic degradations of the speech signal increases. Age-related decline in understanding degraded speech; Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR); Multiply degraded speech.
- Examining the role of auditory sensitivity in the... Nittrouer, Susan; Crowther, Court S. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug1998, Vol. 41 Issue 4, p809
Presents information on the study which examines the role of auditory sensitivity in the developmental weighting shift for speech. Materials and methods; Experimental procedures; Discussion on the results.
- Evaluation of auditory enhancement and auditory suppression in listeners with normal hearing and... Thibodeau, Linda M. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Oct96, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p947
Investigates the auditory performance of persons with abnormal speech recognition despite having normal hearing. Auditory suppression and auditory enhancement; Differences in hearing during two-tone suppression.
- Compensation for Coarticulation: Disentangling Auditory and Gestural Theories of Perception of Coarticulatory Effects in Speech. Viswanathan, Navin; Magnuson, James S.; Fowler, Carol A. // Journal of Experimental Psychology. Human Perception & Performan;Aug2010, Vol. 36 Issue 4, p1005
According to one approach to speech perception, listeners perceive speech by applying general pattern matching mechanisms to the acoustic signal (e.g., Diehl, Lotto, & Holt, 2004). An alternative is that listeners perceive the phonetic gestures that structured the acoustic signal (e.g., Fowler,...
- Case Study of an Auditory Dyslexic. Carpenter, Robert L.; Willis, Diane J. // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Mar1972, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p121
A child with a severe reading disorder of an auditory nature is presented. Intellectual and visual factors appeared to be intact, whereas very poor achievement was evidenced on a variety of auditory frisks. Evaluation of auditory functioning, the relationship of auditory perception to reading,...
- Efectos de la retroalimentaciÃ³n auditiva retardada en los patrones de tartamudez. Hernández Jaramillo, Janeth; Lozada, Yelitza Gil // Revista Ciencias de la Salud;2014, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p243
The present study corresponds to a single subject design, analyzes the patterns of stuttering in the speech corpus in various oral language tasks, under the conditions of use or non-use of Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF), in order to establish the effect of the DAF in the frequency of occurrence...
