- TWENTY-TWO FUNDAMENTAL METHODS OF JAW, LIP, AND TONGUE FACILITATION. Marshall, Pam // International Journal of Orofacial Myology;2007, Vol. 33, p48
Twenty-two fundamental methods of jaw, lip, and tongue facilitation were derived from a set of 84 textbooks, clinical guidebooks, and conference proceedings. 95.24% of publications reviewed contained one or more of these twenty-two methods. A description of each technique with examples is provided.
- How deaf people keep their speech. // New Scientist;9/20/2008, Vol. 199 Issue 2674, p15
The article reports that David Ostry and Sazzad Nasir from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, have shown as part of a research study that distorted speech of people who have become deaf as adults can be corrected by moving their jaws by a couple of millimeters.
- Lip Muscle Activity Related to Speech Rate and Loudness. Wohlert, Amy B.; Hammen, Vicki L. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2000, Vol. 43 Issue 5, p1229
Presents a study which explains that changes in suprasegmental speech parameters may require adjustments in oral motor control that are reflected in the activity of perioral musculature. Methodology of the study; Discussion on the results of the study.
- The Control of Orofacial Movements in Speech. Smith, Anne // Critical Reviews in Oral Biology & Medicine;1992, Vol. 3 Issue 3, p233
Rapid, complex movements of orofacial structures are essential to produce the sounds of speech. A central problem in speech production research is to discover the neural sources that generate the control signals supplied to motoneurons during speaking. Speech movement production appears to share...
- Consonant intelligibility and tongue motility in patients with partial glossectomy. Bressman, T.; Sader, R. // British Dental Journal;12/11/2004, Vol. 197 Issue 11, p687
Discusses the study "Consonant intelligibility and tongue motility in patients with partial glossectomy," by T. Bressman et al, published in a 2004 issue of the "Journal of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery." Outcomes of speech performance assessment in patients who had undergone surgery followed by...
- A RARE CASE OF BILATERALLY MISSING MANDIBULAR CANINE IN CLEFT LIP AND PALATE PATIENT. Maheshwari, Sandhya; Khan, Mohd Toseef; Gupta, N. D. // Guident;Nov2012, Vol. 5 Issue 12, p45
The article describes the case of an 18-year old female patient with irregular teeth who has been operated at the age of two years for cleft lip palate. The girl has defective speech articulation along with strained lips and lip incompetence with severe maxillary arch malocclusion and a...
- Speech Intelligibility in Patients with T1 and T2 Cancers of the Oral Tongue Treated by Wide Excision and Primary Closure. Sebastian, Swapna; Anto Suresh, B.; Ballraj, Achamma // Language in India;Jan2013, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p184
Aim: Glossectomy can affect tongue mobility and impairment of speech. Aim of the study was to measure speech intelligibility preoperatively and post operatively in patients with T1 and T2 cancers of oral tongue who have undergone wide excision and primary closure. Materials and Methods: Twelve...
- Long-Term Prosthodontic Follow-up and Revisional Treatment of Patients with Cleft Lip and Palate: Case Presentation. Ramstad, Tore // International Journal of Prosthodontics;Sep/Oct2001, Vol. 14 Issue 5, p417
Purpose: The purpose of this article is to draw attention to the need for regular life-long follow-up care of cleft lip and palate patients to maintain adequate masticatory function, speech, and esthetics, thereby supporting psychosocial function. Materials and Methods: Intitial and revisional...
- A Biomechanical Modeling Study of the Effects of the Orbicularis Oris Muscle and Jaw Posture on Lip Shape. Stavness, Ian; Nazari, Mohammad Ali; Perrier, Pascal; Demolin, Didier; Payan, Yohan; Kreiman, Jody; Bunton, Kate // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2013, Vol. 56 Issue 3, p878
Purpose: The authorsâ€™ general aim is to use biomechanical models of speech articulators to explore how possible variations in anatomical structure contribute to differences in articulatory strategies and phone systems across human populations. Specifically, they investigated 2 issues: (a)...
