- Recognition of Time-Compressed and Natural Speech With Selective Temporal Enhancements by Young and Elderly Listeners. Gordon-Salant, Sandra; Fitzgibbons, Peter J.; Friedman, Sarah A. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2007, Vol. 50 Issue 5, p1181
Purpose: The goal of this experiment was to determine whether selective slowing of speech segments improves recognition performance by young and elderly listeners. The hypotheses were (a) the benefits of time expansion occur for rapid speech but not for natural-rate speech, (b) selective time...
- The vowel house: a cognitive approach to vowels for literacy and speech. Reid, Jennifer // Child Language Teaching & Therapy;Jun2003, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p152
Awareness of consonants and vowels is a fundamental literacy skill. In English, there is a highly complex relationship between written and spoken vowels. Children with language impairment may display significant difficulties in acquiring adequate phonological processing skills for vowels, with...
- Spectral Dynamics and Classification of Russian Vowels. Kouznetsov, V. B. // Acoustical Physics;Nov2002, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p752
The spectral characteristics of stressed Russian vowels are studied experimentally in relation to the palatalized or nonpalatalized feature of the consonant environment, the local speech tempo, and the speaker effect. The experimental data are used as a basis to discuss the possibility of...

- 'A Way To Make the Spoken Language Clear'. Foster, Susan G. // Education Week;11/24/1982, Vol. 2 Issue 12, p5
The article focuses on the cued speech discovered by Eleanor Sharp, a mother of a profoundly deaf child. Cued speech has a simple design which can be learned in 12 to 20 hours of instruction and has been successful even in preligually deaf. In performing cued speech, eight hand configurations...
- Speech Production in 12-Month-Old Children With and Without Hearing Loss. McGowan, Richard S.; Nittrouer, Susan; Chenausky, Karen // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2008, Vol. 51 Issue 4, p879
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare speech production at 12 months of age for children with hearing loss (HL) who were identified and received intervention before 6 months of age with those of children with normal hearing (NH). Method: The speech production of 10 children with NH...
