- REPRESENTATION OF NASALITY IN CHILDREN'S NON-STANDARD SPELLINGS. Zifcak, Michael // Language & Speech;Jan-Mar84, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p89
The article determines the consistency of nasal omission in English words with a nonehomorganic pairing of nasal and final voiced stop consonant. The stimulus item list included randomly assorted words, categorized according to the position of the nasal segment and voicing of the final stop...
- Evaluation of Hypernasality in Vowels Using Voice Low Tone to High Tone Ratio. Guo-She Lee; Ching-Ping Wang; Sherry Fu // Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal;Jan2009, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p47
Objective: The voice low tone to high tone ratio (VLHR) is defined as the power ratio of low frequency to high frequency energy obtained by dividing the voice spectrum with a specific cutoff frequency. In a previous study, VLHR correlated significantly with nasalance and perceptual rating of...
- Frequency Spectra of Normal Expiratory Nasal Sound. Seren, Erdal // American Journal of Rhinology;May/Jun2005, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p257
Background: The computerized analysis of the nasal sound reflects the nasal airflow. We have developed a new software program that analyzes the nasal sound to use in the research area and clinical applications. We aimed to analyze automatically the spectral parameters of nasal sound in healthy...
- Vowel Analysis for Identifying Expression of Emotions in Odia- Spoken-Language. Mohanty, Sanghamitra; Swain, Basanta Kumar // International Journal of Computer Applications;Apr2012, Vol. 43, p47
Speech can be described as an act of producing voice through the use of the vocal folds and vocal apparatus to create a linguistic act for conveying intended information. Speech is a subtle and rich communication that transfers not only the linguistic information, but also information about the...
- rhinolalia. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p1911
A definition of the term "rhinolalia" is presented. It refers to a voice having a nasal quality.
- Microphone sensitivity as a source of variation in nasalance scores. Zajac, David J.; Lutz, Richard // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Dec96, Vol. 39 Issue 6, p1228
Investigates microphone sensitivity as a source of variation in nasalance scores. Measurement of relative amount of oral and nasal acoustic energies exhibited by the speaker; Occurrence of variations in nasalance as a function of differences in fundamental frequencies and spectra of men and women.
- INFLUÃŠNCIA DA LARGURA DE BANDA DE FORMANTES NA QUALIDADE VOCAL. Magri, Aline; Stamado, Tatiana; de Camargo, Zuleica Antonia // Revista CEFAC;2009, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p296
Purpose: to investigate the first three forms of bandwidth values (B1, B2 and B3) and their correlation with auditory perception analysis of oral output for dysphonic individuals and compare them with a control group. Methods: the studied group was represented by a voice sample and auditory...
