Voice Onset Time Characteristics of Esophageal, Tracheoesophageal, and Laryngeal Speech of Cantonese
- Formantology. McCoy, Scott // Journal of Singing;Sep/Oct2013, Vol. 70 Issue 1, p43
The article discusses voice acoustics and harmonics found in singing, including the function and exploitation of formants, which are resonances of the vocal tract, which together could be referred to as the science of formantology. A discussion of the benefits that voice teachers and students...
- Perception of Wet Vocal Quality in Identifying Penetration/Aspiration During Swallowing. Groves-Wright, Kathy Jean; Boyce, Suzanne; Kelchner, Lisa // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2010, Vol. 53 Issue 3, p620
Purpose: In the present study, the authors investigated the association between wet vocal quality (WVQ) and prandial material in the larynx during phonation. The presence of such material is indicative of oropharyngeal dysphagia and results from entry of material into the laryngeal vestibule...
- Effect of Dystrophin Deficiency on Selected Intrinsic Laryngeal Muscles of the mdx Mouse. Lisa T. Fry; Stemple, Joseph C.; Andreatta, Richard D.; Harrison, Anne L.; Andrade, Francisco H. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2010, Vol. 53 Issue 3, p633
Background: Intrinsic laryngeal muscles (ILM) show biological differences from the broader class of skeletal muscles. Yet most research regarding ILM specialization has been completed on a few muscles, most notably the thyroarytenoid and posterior cricoarytenoid. Little information exists...
- Acoustic and Perceptual Effects of Leftâ€“Right Laryngeal Asymmetries Based on Computational Modeling. Samlan, Robin A.; Story, Brad H.; Lotto, Andrew J.; Bunton, Kate // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2014, Vol. 57 Issue 5, p1619
Purpose: Computational modeling was used to examine the consequences of 5 different laryngeal asymmetries on acoustic and perceptual measures of vocal function. Method: A kinematic vocal fold model was used to impose 5 laryngeal asymmetries: adduction, edge bulging, nodal point ratio, amplitude...

- probang. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p1775
A definition of the term "probang" is presented. It refers to a slim, flexible rod that can be used for determining the location of strictures in the larynx or esophagus and for removing objects from the trachea.
- Conceptual and Clinical Updates on Vocal Tremor. Barkmeier-Kraemer, Julie; Story, Brad // ASHA Leader;11/23/2010, Vol. 15 Issue 14, p16
The article focuses on the issue of vocal tremor which is considered as a neurogenic voice disorder. It notes that the primary treatment approach for individuals who have essential tremor such as Parkinson's disease and spasmodic dysphonia is medical intervention. It offers a discussion on the...
- The Incredible Power of Speech. TARSHIS, LAUREN // Scholastic Scope;Apr2015, Vol. 63 Issue 8, p21
The article offers information on the ability to communicate through speech in human being and states that only humans have the ability to speak and mentions that lungs exhale air across larynx which vibrates our vocal cords which produces the sound of voice.
- Pediatric Voice Disorders: Evaluation and Management. Theis, Shannon M. // ASHA Leader;11/23/2010, Vol. 15 Issue 14, p12
The article focuses on the issue of pediatric voice disorders and its effect to the life of a child in the U.S. It notes that incidence rates of pediatric voice disorders range from 6% to 23% and it resulted in negative attention and limited participation in activities. Furthermore, childhood...
