- Estimation of Alveolar Pressure During Speech Using Direct Measures of Tracheal Pressure. Finnegan, Eileen M.; Luschei, Erich S. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct1999, Vol. 42 Issue 5, p1136
Provides information on a study which obtained values for lower airway resistance during speech. Estimation of alveolar pressure; Quantification of the degree to which tracheal pressure approximates alveolar pressure during production of voiced and voiceless sounds and during inhalation.
- Words Fail Me. Whirty, Ryan // Indianapolis Monthly;May2003, Vol. 26 Issue 10, p90
Focuses on stuttering and problems faced by the author due to it. There are three million stutterers in the U.S., people for whom the simple act of talking is an often-humiliating, nerve-wracking experience. Stuttering is like other conditions that negatively affect normal, everyday human...
- Orofacial Movements Associated With Fluent Speech in Persons Who Stutter. McClean, Michael D.; Tasko, Stephen M.; Runyan, Charles M. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2004, Vol. 47 Issue 2, p294
This study was intended to replicate and extend previous findings that (a) during fluent speech persons who stutter (PS) and those who do not (NS) differ in their vocal tract closing movements (L. Max, A. J. Caruso, & V. L. Gracco, 2003) and (b) ratios relating lip and tongue speed to jaw speed...
- Chest Wall Motion During Speech Production in Patients With Advanced Ankylosing Spondylitis. Kalliakosta, Georgia; Mandros, Charalampos; Tzelepis, George E. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2007, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p109
Purpose: To test the hypothesis that ankylosing spondylitis (AS) alters the pattern of chest wall motion during speech production. Method: The pattern of chest wall motion during speech was measured with respiratory inductive plethysmography in 6 participants with advanced AS (5 men, 1 woman,...
- Description of Phonetic, Acoustic, and Physiological Changes Associated With Improved... Roy, Nelson; Leeper, Herbert A.; Blomgren, Michael; Cameron, Rosalea M. // American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology;Aug2001, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p274
Describes the recovery of an individual with severe spastic dysarthria, a motor speech disorder, and illustrates the close relationship between intelligibility measures and physiological parameters. Use of phonetic feature analyses in combination with acoustic and physiological information to...
- Measurement of Speech Effort During Fluency-Inducing Conditions in Adults Who Do and Do Not Stutter. Ingham, Roger J.; Bothe, Anne K.; Jang, Erin; Yates, Lauren; Cotton, John; Seybold, Irene // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2009, Vol. 52 Issue 5, p1286
Purpose: To investigate the effects of 4 fluency-inducing (FI) conditions on self-rated speech effort and other variables in adults who stutter and in normally fluent controls. Method: Twelve adults with persistent stuttering and 12 adults who had never stuttered each completed 4 ABA-format...
- Understanding stuttering. // Current Health 1;Sep98, Vol. 22 Issue 1, p29
Discusses the causes of stuttering. How to talk to people who stutter; List of the famous people who stuttered.
- Commentary on 'A Theory of Neuropsycholinguistic Function in Stuttering'. Smith, Anne // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Aug92, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p805
Comments on a study which proposed a neuropsycholinguistic theory of stuttering. Definition of stuttering; Analysis on the absence of citations to experimental work; Assessment on the theory.
- Long-Term Follow-up of Self-Modeling as an Intervention for Stuttering. Bray, Melissa A.; Kehle, Thomas J. // School Psychology Review;2001, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p135
Reports on a long-tern follow-up of the effects of self-modeling on the reduction of stuttering in two groups of students. Percentage of the students who exhibited normal fluency and dysfluency after a four-year follow-up period; Number of students who maintained their treatment effects; Speech...
