- The Influence of Speaking Rate on Nasality in the Speech of Hearing-Impaired Individuals. Dwyer, Claire H.; Robb, Michael P.; O'Beirne, Greg A.; Gilbert, Harvey R. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2009, Vol. 52 Issue 5, p1321
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine whether deliberate increases in speaking rate would serve to decrease the amount of nasality in the speech of severely hearing-impaired individuals. Method: The participants were 11 severely to profoundly hearing-impaired students, ranging in...
- A Comparative Study of Two Acoustic Measures of Hypernasality. Vogel, Adam P.; Ibrahim, Hasherah M.; Reilly, Sheena; Kilpatrick, Nicky // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Dec2009, Vol. 52 Issue 6, p1640
Purpose: This study aimed to compare 2 quantitative acoustic measures of nasality in children with cleft lip and palate (CLP) and healthy controls using formalized perceptual assessment as a guide. Method: Fifty participants (23 children with CLP and 27 age- and gender-matched healthy controls)...

Presents several letters to the editor concerning on speech and literature. Information on phonetics; Differences between oral and nasal sounds; Discussions on the superiority of vocal communications over gesture.
- A Comparison of Equal-Appearing Interval Scaling and Direct Magnitude Estimation of Nasal Voice Quality. Zraick, Richard I.; Liss, Julie M. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2000, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p979
Presents information on a study which conducted a comparison of equal-appearing interval scaling and direct magnitude estimation of nasal voice quality. Validity of equal-appearing interval scaling of nasality; Methodology of the study; Results and discussion; Conclusion.
- Direct Magnitude Estimation and Interval Scaling of Hypernasality. Whitehill, Tara L.; Lee, Alice S. Y.; Chun, Joyce C. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2002, Vol. 45 Issue 1, p80
Hypernasality is most commonly assessed using equal-appearing interval (EAI) scaling. Recently, the validity of EAI scaling for the evaluation of hypernasality has been questioned. The issue of validity rests on the psychophysical nature of the dimension to be rated. The purpose of this study...

Debates on whether hypernasality is a voice disorder or not. Medical definition of hypernasality; Information on related studies; Corollaries that must be considered.
- Multidimensional Scaling of Nasal Voice Quality. Zraick, Richard I.; Liss, Julie M.; Dorman, Michael F.; Case, James L.; LaPointe, Leonard L.; Beals, Stephen P. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2000, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p989
Presents information on a study which determined whether the perception of nasality is unidimensional or multidimensional. Possible co-occurring dimensions that influence listeners' perception of nasal voice quality; Methodology of the study; Results and discussion; Conclusion.
