Interarticulator programming in VCV sequences: lip and tongue movements. (1/422)

This study examined the temporal phasing of tongue and lip movements in vowel-consonant-vowel sequences where the consonant is a bilabial stop consonant /p, b/ and the vowels one of /i, a, u/; only asymmetrical vowel contexts were included in the analysis. Four subjects participated. Articulatory movements were recorded using a magnetometer system. The onset of the tongue movement from the first to the second vowel almost always occurred before the oral closure. Most of the tongue movement trajectory from the first to the second vowel took place during the oral closure for the stop. For all subjects, the onset of the tongue movement occurred earlier with respect to the onset of the lip closing movement as the tongue movement trajectory increased. The influence of consonant voicing and vowel context on interarticulator timing and tongue movement kinematics varied across subjects. Overall, the results are compatible with the hypothesis that there is a temporal window before the oral closure for the stop during which the tongue movement can start. A very early onset of the tongue movement relative to the stop closure together with an extensive movement before the closure would most likely produce an extra vowel sound before the closure.  (+info)

Training Japanese listeners to identify English /r/ and /l/: long-term retention of learning in perception and production. (2/422)

Previous work from our laboratories has shown that monolingual Japanese adults who were given intensive high-variability perceptual training improved in both perception and production of English /r/-/l/ minimal pairs. In this study, we extended those findings by investigating the long-term retention of learning in both perception and production of this difficult non-native contrast. Results showed that 3 months after completion of the perceptual training procedure, the Japanese trainees maintained their improved levels of performance of the perceptual identification task. Furthermore, perceptual evaluations by native American English listeners of the Japanese trainees' pretest, posttest, and 3-month follow-up speech productions showed that the trainees retained their long-term improvements in the general quality, identifiability, and overall intelligibility of their English/r/-/l/ word productions. Taken together, the results provide further support for the efficacy of high-variability laboratory speech sound training procedures, and suggest an optimistic outlook for the application of such procedures for a wide range of "special populations."  (+info)

Interarticulator phasing, locus equations, and degree of coarticulation. (3/422)

A locus equation plots the frequency of the second formant at vowel onset against the target frequency of the same formant for the vowel in a consonant-vowel sequence, across different vowel contexts. It has generally been assumed that the slope of the locus equation reflects the degree of coarticulation between the consonant and the vowel, with a steeper slope showing more coarticulation. This study examined the articulatory basis for this assumption. Four subjects participated and produced VCV sequences of the consonants /b, d, g/ and the vowels /i, a, u/. The movements of the tongue and the lips were recorded using a magnetometer system. One articulatory measure was the temporal phasing between the onset of the lip closing movement for the bilabial consonant and the onset of the tongue movement from the first to the second vowel in a VCV sequence. A second measure was the magnitude of the tongue movement during the oral stop closure, averaged across four receivers on the tongue. A third measure was the magnitude of the tongue movement from the onset of the second vowel to the tongue position for that vowel. When compared with the corresponding locus equations, no measure showed any support for the assumption that the slope serves as an index of the degree of coarticulation between the consonant and the vowel.  (+info)

The physiologic development of speech motor control: lip and jaw coordination. (4/422)

This investigation was designed to describe the development of lip and jaw coordination during speech and to evaluate the potential influence of speech motor development on phonologic development. Productions of syllables containing bilabial consonants were observed from speakers in four age groups (i.e., 1-year-olds, 2-year-olds, 6-year-olds, and young adults). A video-based movement tracking system was used to transduce movement of the upper lip, lower lip, and jaw. The coordinative organization of these articulatory gestures was shown to change dramatically during the first several years of life and to continue to undergo refinement past age 6. The present results are consistent with three primary phases in the development of lip and jaw coordination for speech: integration, differentiation, and refinement. Each of these developmental processes entails the existence of distinct coordinative constraints on early articulatory movement. It is suggested that these constraints will have predictable consequences for the sequence of phonologic development.  (+info)

Phonological grouping is specifically affected in cerebellar patients: a verbal fluency study. (5/422)

OBJECTIVES: Recent clinical and functional neuroimaging evidence points towards a cerebellar role in verbal production. At present it is not clear how the cerebellum participates in language production. The aim was to investigate the influence of cerebellar lesions on verbal fluency abilities with specific focus on the verbal searching strategies employed by patients with cerebellar damage. METHODS: Twenty five patients with focal or degenerative cerebellar disease and 14 control subjects were tested in a timed verbal fluency task requiring word production under forced (phonemic or semantic) conditions. To analyse the verbal searching strategy employed, semantic and phonemic cluster analyses were also performed. RESULTS: Performances of cerebellar patients were comparable with those of controls in the semantic task; conversely their performances were significantly impaired when tested in the letter task. Cluster analysis results showed that the verbal fluency impairment is linked to specific damage of phonemically related retrieval strategies. CONCLUSION: Cerebellar damage impairs verbal fluency by specifically affecting phonemic rule performances while sparing semantic rule ones. These findings underline the importance of the cerebellar computing properties in strategy development in the linguistic domain.  (+info)

Modeling and perception of 'gesture reduction'. (6/422)

The phenomenon of vowel reduction is investigated by modeling 'gesture reduction' with the use of the Distinctive Region Model (DRM). First, a definition is proposed for the term gesture, i.e. an acoustically efficient command aimed at deforming, in the time domain, the area function of the vocal tract. Second, tests are reported on the perception of vowel-to-vowel transitions obtained with reduced gestures. These tests show that a dual representation of formant transitions is required to explain the reduction phenomenon: the trajectory in the F(1)-F(2) plane and the time course of the formant changes. The results also suggest that time-domain integration of the trajectories constitutes an integral part of the auditory processing of transitions. Perceptual results are also discussed in terms of the acoustic traces of DRM gestures.  (+info)

The influence of phonological similarity neighborhoods on speech production. (7/422)

The influence of phonological similarity neighborhoods on the speed and accuracy of speech production was investigated with speech-error elicitation and picture-naming tasks. The results from 2 speech-error elicitation techniques-the spoonerisms of laboratory induced predisposition technique (B. J. Baars, 1992; B. J. Baars & M. T. Motley, 1974; M. T. Motley & B. J. Baars, 1976) and tongue twisters-showed that more errors were elicited for words with few similar sounding words (i.e., a sparse neighborhood) than for words with many similar sounding words (i.e., a dense neighborhood). The results from 3 picture-naming tasks showed that words with sparse neighborhoods were also named more slowly than words with dense neighborhoods. These findings demonstrate that multiple word forms are activated simultaneously and influence the speed and accuracy of speech production. The implications of these findings for current models of speech production are discussed.  (+info)

Central bottleneck influences on the processing stages of word production. (8/422)

Does producing a word slow performance of a concurrent, unrelated task? In 2 experiments, 108 participants named pictures and discriminated tones. In Experiment 1, pictures were named after cloze sentences; the durations of the word-production stages of lemma and phonological word-form selection were manipulated with high- and low-constraint cloze sentences and high- and low-frequency-name pictures, respectively. In Experiment 2, pictures were presented with simultaneous distractor words; the durations of lemma and phoneme selection were manipulated with conceptually and phonologically related distractors. All manipulations, except the phoneme-selection manipulation, delayed tone-discrimination responses as much as picture-naming responses. These results suggest that early word-production stages--lemma and phonological word-form selection--are subject to a central processing bottleneck, whereas the later stage--phoneme selection--is not.  (+info)

Abstract : Language does not evolve in an isolated manner, in its own purely cultural realm where the only factors that influence it are language internal. In fact, a series of extra-linguistic factors including latitude, altitude, humidity and deafness arguably have an impact on the way language evolves (diachronically) and on the patterns of linguistic diversity (synchronically). Therefore, I will argue that such small biases nudge the process of language evolution through its repeated use and transmission, playing a part in explaining the observed trajectories of language change and patterns of diversity. Here, I will focus in particular on the potential effects that the anatomy and physiology of the vocal tract might have on speech production. More precisely, I will argue that not only are there vast amounts of inter-individual variation in the vocal tract (VT) which might affect speech production at the individual level, but that this variation is patterned across populations resulting in ...

Do you understand English speakers when they say I can see you after class. vs. I cant see you after class.. She can tell you the directions. vs. She cant tell you the directions.. He can go to the store. vs. He cant go to the store.. Can and cant sound very similar in conversational speech, but there is a way to tell the difference. It is normal for both words to sound reduced, like kin or ken (the vowel has a more central placement in the mouth, rather than a low placement that you see in words like man and hand.) One way to tell the difference between can and cant is to listen for the /t/. But even the /t/ might be so reduced that you miss it. So the best way to tell the difference between can and cant is to listen for the vowel length. The vowel sound in cant is longer.. Good job speaking English. Keep up the good work!. ...
Once, in Garcias studio, I was given a most instructive lesson in the diagnosing of voices. He asked me to listen with him to two singers who had come from America. They were under the impression that they had studied with a teacher who was a representative of the Garcia technique, but in the singing that followed there was no trace of it. Manuel Garcia then asked them to sing some exercises and vocalizations, which seemed to them a strange request. It was a most amazingly amateurish exemplification of tone production. When asked to project the pure Italian vowels, they could not do it. One a baritone had a very throaty voice, and the other a tenor, sang with a nasal quality. The climax came when the poor fellows asked whether they might take lessons from him, during the few weeks of their stay in London. No, no, he exclaimed emphatically, I do not want to commit a sin! Then the tenor asked in a disagreeable way, That means dismissed? Yes, said Garcia, soberly, and with the advice to ...

However, IM training physiologically changes the brain by helping to synchronize the functional brain networks. When these networks communicate efficiently and rhythmically, they can overcome this damage because of the stronger remaining connections. That is because timing is a domain-general mechanism. The domain-general mechanism of timing is a jack of all trades mechanism that manifests itself in walking, sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication.. IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format. Research has shown that Interactive Metronome® improves motor coordination, working memory, processing and sequencing. Now, individuals can restore function to the brains temporal processing network, not simply rehabilitate and adapt to deficits.

This is an episode that perfectly sums up Matt Smiths time. It brings together the plot arcs of the Silence, the cracks, Gallifrey falls no more and Trenzalore and ties them up in a neat little bow to wipe the slate clean for incoming Doctor, Peter Capaldi. It also plays to Smiths comedy strengths, like the bald scene and his interactions with Claras family while naked to everyone but her. His dramatic skills are utilised as well, with the story taking place for him over 900 years and the Doctor aging with it. Smith looks older - I have to hand it to the makeup people for making him look older convincingly - and never has the description of the 11th Doctor being an old man in a young mans body been more noticeable than this episode when his body ages too. He doesnt even need to change his characters mannerisms and speech patterns ...

It represents a unique collection of theoretical and experimental work, bringing otherwise widespread information together in a comprehensive way. This quality makes this book unlike any other book published in the area of speech motor production and fluency disorders.Topics that are covered include models in speech production, motor control in speech production and fluency disorders, brain research in speech production, methods and measurements in pathological speech, developmental aspects of speech production and fluency disorders. Scientists, clinicians and students as well as anybody interested in the field of speech motor production and fluency disorders, will find useful information in t
Speech production is the process by which thoughts are translated into speech. This includes the selection of words, the organization of relevant grammatical forms, and then the articulation of the resulting sounds by the motor system using the vocal apparatus. Speech production can be spontaneous such as when a person creates the words of a conversation, reactive such as when they name a picture or read aloud a written word, or imitative, such as in speech repetition. Speech production is not the same as language production since language can also be produced manually by signs. In ordinary fluent conversation people pronounce roughly four syllables, ten or twelve phonemes and two to three words out of their vocabulary (that can contain 10 to 100 thousand words) each second. Errors in speech production are relatively rare occurring at a rate of about once in every 900 words in spontaneous speech. Words that are commonly spoken or learned early in life or easily imagined are quicker to say than ...
Production and comprehension of speech are closely interwoven. For example, the ability todetect an error in ones own speech, halt speech production, and finally correct the error can beexplained by assuming an inner speech loop which continuously compares the word representationsinduced by production to those induced by perception at various cognitive levels (e.g. conceptual, word,or phonological levels). Because spontaneous speech errors are relatively rare, a picture naming and haltparadigm can be used to evoke them. In this paradigm, picture presentation (target word initiation) isfollowed by an auditory stop signal (distractor word) for halting speech production. The current studyseeks to understand the neural mechanisms governing self-detection of speech errors by developing abiologically inspired neural model of the inner speech loop. The neural model is based on the NeuralEngineering Framework (NEF) and consists of a network of about 500,000 spiking neurons. In the firstexperiment we induce

Many stuttering treatments incorporate contingencies for stuttering that are thought to contribute to treatment effectiveness. One contingency used in a number of treatment programs for children is time-out (TO) from speaking. However, although TO has been shown to control stuttering in adults there are no clear demonstrations of this effect in children. One aim of the present study was to demonstrate in the laboratory that TO reduces stuttering in children. Three school-age children spoke in a single-subject ABA experiment. In the B phase, a red light was illuminated for 5 seconds when the subject stuttered, during which time the subject stopped talking. Two of the three children showed clear reductions in stuttering in response to TO. The second aim of the study was to detect whether the children who responded to TO adopted an unusual speech pattern in order to control their stuttering. Listeners did not detect any differences between the perceptually stutter-free speech of baseline conditions ...

Most current theories of lexical access in speech production are designed to capture the behaviour of young adults - typically college students. However, young adults represent a minority of the worlds speakers. For theories of speech production, the question arises of how the young adults speech develops out of the quite different speech observed in children and adolescents and how the speech of young adults evolves into the speech observed in older persons. Though a model of adult speech production need not include a detailed account language development, it should be compatible with current knowledge about the development of language across the lifespan. In this sense, theories of young adults speech production may be constrained by theories and findings concerning the development of language with age. Conversely, any model of language acquisition or language change in older adults should, of course, be compatible with existing theories of the ideal speech found in young speakers. For ...
There are relatively few cases of psychogenic acquired stuttering reported in the literature. This paper addresses one such case, which revealed a solution in search of an explanation (Dworkin, Culatta, Abkarian, & Meleca, 2002, p. 222).. What is Psychogenic Acquired Stuttering?. Psychogenic acquired stuttering typically begins in adulthood in association with a psychological disturbance or emotionally traumatic event, with no association of a history of developmental stuttering or neuropathology. With some variation, the speech disfluency resembling stuttering begins abruptly, is characterized by repetition of initial or stressed syllables, is without secondary symptoms (i.e., learned reactions to the stuttering) or episodes of spontaneous fluency, and does not reduce with fluency facilitating contexts (e.g., choral reading, white noise, delayed auditory feedback, singing, and different communication contexts). The person with psychogenic acquired stuttering may demonstrate atypical ...

The fluent production of speech is a very complex human skill. It requires the coordination of several articulatory subsystems. The instructions that lead articulatory movements to execution are the result of the interplay of speech production levels that operate above the articulatory network. During the process of word-form encoding, the groundwork for the articulatory programs is prepared which then serve the articulators as basic units. This thesis investigated whether or not syllables form the basis for the articulatory programs and in particular whether or not these syllable programs are stored, separate from the store of the lexical word-forms. It is assumed that syllable units are stored in a so-called mental syllabary. The main goal of this thesis was to find evidence of the syllable playing a functionally important role in speech production and for the assumption that syllables are stored units. In a variant of the implicit priming paradigm, it was investigated whether information ...
It has been suggested previously that at least some levels of the temporal organization for speech production are characterized by proportional timing. The proportional timing model maintains that the duration of temporal intervals within a sequence would remain proportionally invariant across changes in overall duration of the sequence. In order to test this hypothesis for the acoustic level of speech production, 18 women produced three trials of the utterance Buy Bobby a poppy at each of three speaking rates (i.e., slow, normal, fast). Acoustically derived temporal intervals were paired to form ratios reflecting either syllablelevel or phrase-level relative timing. Findings indicated that ratios of temporal intervals at both the syllable-level and phrase-level did not remain invariant across speaking rates. Rather, statistically significant changes in the relative duration of both types of intervals were observed as a function of overall rate of production. For most of the obtained ratios, ...
The work of Penfield and collaborators was based predominantly on patients undergoing surgical treatment of epilepsy. The goal of surgery for epilepsy continues to be the excision of epileptogenic tissue in its entirety without resection of normal tissue or tissue essential for speech, language, and memory. Some neurosurgeons have suggested using anatomical landmarks to spare language cortex with dominant hemisphere surgery, such as the superior temporal gyrus and beyond 4 cm from the temporal tip. There is, however, considerable variability in cortical organization across individuals, and resections in anatomically safe areas have been associated with post-operative aphasias (Ojemann, 1993). Thus, reliance on anatomical landmarks may put language at risk in some patients. The surest method to exclude speech and language cortex from resection is to methodically map the cortical area housing the epileptogenic focus ...
This study explored relationships of speaker sex and masculinity-femininity judgments and 12 measures of rate, fundamental frequency, and intensity from taped reading and spontaneous speech samples of female and male heterosexual and homosexual individuals. Phase One was designed to determine judgment reliability and any procedural variables that might influence judgments. Sex judgments were more accurate on the speakers second performances. Both sex and masculine-feminine judgments were more accurate on reading than on spontaneous speech. Analysis of judgments from type-scripts of spontaneous speech yielded a significant judge sex-by-training interaction. In Phase Two, 20 listeners judged sex and masculinity-femininity from taped reading and spontaneous speech samples of female and male heterosexual and homosexual speakers. The mean fundamental frequency low of females judged male/undecided was higher than those judged correctly. The mean intensity standard deviation of females judged female intensity

Dr. Gerald Maguire Research, particularly of the past ten years, has started to pinpoint the neurophysiological roots of stuttering. Maguire describes the different known causes: the neurological aspect in the basal ganglia area of the brain, and the hereditary factor. Interestingly, there is believed to be a link between streptococcal infections in early childhood and stuttering, but the theory needs more study.. Maguire intersperses personal testimonials from people who stutter at the beginning of each chapter. They tell about how prescribed medications have helped, in varying degress, to improve their speech. Nobody describes it as eliminating their stuttering entirely, rather that they experienced a small to medium level of improvement in their speech, which helped their confidence.. Maguire talks about medications that have a proven level of success in increasing fluency, but none of these drugs are FDA certified to be administered specifically for stuttering. Maguire believes that the ...
Purpose: The production of formulaic expressions (conversational speech formulas, pause fillers, idioms, and other fixed expressions) is excessive in the left hemisphere and deficient in the right hemisphere and in subcortical stroke. Speakers with Alzheimers disease (AD), having functional basal ganglia, reveal abnormally high proportions of formulaic language. Persons with Parkinsons disease (PD), having dysfunctional basal ganglia, were predicted to show impoverished formulaic expressions in contrast to speakers with AD. This study compared participants with PD, participants with AD, and healthy control (HC) participants on protocols probing production and comprehension of formulaic expressions. Method: Spontaneous speech samples were recorded from 16 individuals with PD, 12 individuals with AD, and 18 HC speakers. Structured tests were then administered as probes of comprehension. Results: The PD group had lower proportions of formulaic expressions compared with the AD and HC
Originally I chose to not filter out empty strings from utterances. With the thought that ATs could have some understanding about how the utterance is constructed and modify their presentation. For example on a focus event, strings in odd indexes are names or values, strings in even indexes are roles or descriptions. The problem is that it seems like TalkBack delimits each element from the utterance with spaces, so if you land on plain text, and the utterance (in Android it is AccessibilityEvent.getText()) would be [, some text]. This would be sent to the TTS as some text. the preceding whitespace delays the speech, so users get a laggy experience (well a more laggy experience ...
Earlier research by Drayna and colleagues has identified several genes associated with stuttering. In this study, the researchers set out to identify changes in the brain brought on by the mutations in a gene called GNPTAB, one of the genes previously linked to stuttering. The scientists engineered this human stuttering mutation into the mice to create a mouse model. The mice with the GNPTAB mutation had long pauses in their stream of vocalizations, similar to those found in people with the same mutation. Like people who stutter, the mice were normal in all other ways, reinforcing earlier research that suggests that the mice can serve as a valid animal model for important features of this disorder. ...

Pronunciation: die-a-leck-tick. Sentence: For most of his life, Joe was able to avoid mishap caused by his dialectick. Growing up in Central Iowa, no one seemed to notice or care much when he affected the speech patterns of a Keokuk-ian or Des Moines-ite. But his dialectick did not serve him well when he got a job at the Starbucks across the street from U.N. headquarters. He was fired after two hours because of complaints that he was taunting the customers.. Etymology: Dialect (dialect n.

The most distinguishing symptom of AS is a childs obsessive interest in a single object or topic to the exclusion of any other. Some children with AS have become experts on vacuum cleaners, makes and models of cars, even objects as odd as deep fat fryers. Children with AS want to know everything about their topic of interest and their conversations with others will be about little else. Their expertise, high level of vocabulary, and formal speech patterns make them seem like little professors.. Children with AS will gather enormous amounts of factual information about their favorite subject and will talk incessantly about it, but the conversation may seem like a random collection of facts or statistics, with no point or conclusion.. Their speech may be marked by a lack of rhythm, an odd inflection, or a monotone pitch. Children with AS often lack the ability to modulate the volume of their voice to match their surroundings. For example, they will have to be reminded to talk softly every time ...

The aim of this study was to investigate the acquisition of grammar in children _ with Down syndrome, in particular to look at the production of morphological rules (stated by Brown 1973), and onset ages at which they are acquired in their language. In a study of three children in the United States, Brown found that between the ages of 2 and 4 years, typically developing children gradually incorporated a variety of different morphemes in their speech. Although there was little correspondence between the inclusion of separate morphemes and chronological age, there was a strong similarity in relation to the sequence in which the different morphemes appeared in their speech. In this longitudinal study the children with Down syndrome produce their first 10 words on average 12 months later than typically developing children, then the majority of the early morphological rules were in fact acquired by the children with Down syndrome, at a similar rate to typically developing children. This therefore would
With the Lidcombe Program for childhood stuttering, our first goal, usually, is to eliminate or virtually eliminate the childs stuttering in structured activities at home (early Stage 1). By structured activities, we mean that we set up the sessions deliberately in a way to get the child as fluent as possible, as quickly as possible, for 10-15 minutes a day. The resource is designed for face-to-face sessions and devices, and is suitable for highly structured practice. The questions used in this resource are aligned with Blanks First Level of Questioning and are thus suitable for most preschoolers and young school-age children.
First-time filmmaker Robert Eggers extraordinary horror film The Witch begins with an earnest, gravel-voiced dissident named William (Ralph Ineson) boldly defying a grim-faced panel of Puritan judges. When one of them reminds him that they are his judges, not he theirs, he says scornfully, I cannot be judged by false Christians. Would he be banished from the plantation, then? I would be glad of it, he answers proudly.. Hollywood conventions and cultural assumptions incline us to assume the rigidity and intolerance of the community elders and to take this contrarian as the voice of moral reason. Its a bit of a shock to consider later that the reverse might be closer to the truth.. One of last years best-made but most unsettling films, The Witch is a deeply unconventional horror film on many levels, from the authentically archaic speech patterns, formal yet plainspoken, of the Puritan era, to the equally archaic theological worldview persuasively evoked with that language, including the ...
Patrick is devastated. [Devastated? How many married guys get a shot at a threesome without all the baggage?] He and Dr. Freedman study Claires condition feverishly and postulate that the normal left/right brain communication has been interfered with (much like a clinical condition associated with an exotic surgery used for severe epilepsy patients), [Thanks, I was wondering what the medical explanation was for this interference.] stranding Claire in the right brain and an over-achieving remnant of Claire, Joy, in the left brain. [Doctor House would test the theory by removing the left side of the brain; fortunately hes on his summer hiatus.] Claires family and friends are skeptical of Claires claims, especially when an MRI reveals a tiny brain lesion in an area of the brain frequently associated with the aphasic speech pattern that Claire presented for a while. Medical gravity leans towards the lesion despite its size. [The MRI found the lesion that was created by the EEG. Now they need ...

Written by Courtney Stackhouse. The science-based stuttering therapy program at Hollins Communications Research Institute (HCRI) focuses explicitly on correcting muscle distortions and teaching new speaking skills that participants utilize to maintain fluency for a lifetime. As a behavioral therapy designed to help people achieve fluency, HCRIs 12-day program does not include a psychological component.. Yet, those who participate gain self-confidence that comes from using their new skills and speaking fluently at will. For many clients, this newfound confidence is something they never experienced before attending HCRI stuttering therapy.. One such person is 26-year-old Byron Jones. Before Byron attended HCRIs program, he had difficulty talking in front of strangers and friends alike. He tried a variety of therapies that proved to be unsuccessful. He practiced with numerous fluency teachers over the years and even tried an auditory-feedback device. Any positive results only lasted for a short ...

Dear ER, Oh my! I tried to simplify the definition in order that people who did not clutter all the time could be included (especially because so many of them normalize in front of a microphone or camera). But how much cluttering is sufficient. Maybe several isolated incidents could be ambiguous, but the definition notes state that the examples must be clear (i.e., unambiguous). Its similar to stuttering. One or two clear instances are sufficient to diagnose stuttering. Thats about the best I can do. Best, Ken. ...

(
  • The highly influential DIVA speech production model proposes that the left hemisphere is specialized in feedforward specifications of motor outputs while the right hemisphere processes auditory speech feedback to refine motor output based on external sensory information 1 . (

  • Exploration of phonological, lexical syntactic-morphological, and pragmatic aspects of human communication associated with speech, language, hearing, and related disorders, normal processes of speech and language comprehension and production over the life span. (
  • These results suggest that emotion modulates linguistic processes not only in speech production but also in speech perception, and such modulations may differ between the genders at least in perceptual processes. (
  • However, there have been few neurophysiological investigations of speech production in children who stutter. (
  • We found distinctly different speech-related hemodynamic responses in the group of children who stutter compared to the control group. (
  • This investigation of neural activation during natural, connected speech production in children who stutter demonstrates that in childhood stuttering, atypical functional organization for speech production is present and suggests promise for the use of fNIRS during natural speech production in future research with typical and atypical child populations. (
  • Task-related factors in oral motor control: speech and oral diadochokinesis in dysarthria and apraxi. (
  • Since a deterioration of speech function has more often been observed under high stimulation amplitudes, this phenomenon has been ascribed to a spread of current-to-adjacent pathways which might also be the reason for the sporadic observation of an onset of dysarthria under DBS of other basal ganglia targets (e.g., globus pallidus internus/GPi or thalamus/Vim). (
  • Nearly 90% of individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) develop voice and speech disorders (dysarthria) in the course of their disease [ 1 ]. (

  • Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder resulting from neurologic impairment affecting mainly the control and execution of movements related to speech production. (
  • New clues may help improve speech for people with dysarthria, a type of speech disorder commonly found in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). (
  • Dysarthria can cause slurred speech, slowed speech, abnormal pitch and rhythm, changes in voice quality and limited tongue, lip or jaw movement, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. (
  • A Penn State study brings researchers one step closer to better understanding and treating dysarthria, a type of speech disorder, in people with ALS. (
  • The consequences of speech disorders associated with cleft on intelligibility and communicative participation are also covered. (
  • The most important qualities of a speech synthesis system are naturalness and Intelligibility. (
  • Naturalness describes how closely the output sounds like human speech, while intelligibility is the ease with which the output is understood. (
  • Though, these ameliorations of single speech modalities were not always accompanied by an improvement of overall speech intelligibility. (
  • From the therapeutic point of view, the effect of dopaminergic medication on different speech parameters and overall speech intelligibility in particular remains somewhat inconclusive. (
  • There are some reports of positive levodopa effects on tongue strength and endurance and of an improvement of speech intelligibility assessed by perceptual analysis in PD patients [ 9 - 11 ]. (
  • Results: No significant change in speech intelligibility was evident following Smooth Speech therapy. (
  • Thus, we are trying to find a way to enhance their speech intelligibility by looking at tongue and jaw movement characteristics simultaneously. (
  • The focus of this book is on speech production and speech processing associated with cleft palate, covering phonetic (perceptual and instrumental), phonological and psycholinguistic perspectives, and including coverage of implications for literacy and education, as well as cross-linguistic differences.

  • We view stuttering as a multi-dimensional, multiple risks disorder that includes such aspects as social interactions, emotional reactions, auditory processing, language production and speech motor programming. (
  • Proper speech production requires auditory speech feedback control. (
  • However, previous studies have investigated only spectral perturbations of the auditory speech feedback. (
  • Since auditory perception is known to be lateralized, with right-lateralized analysis of spectral features and left-lateralized processing of temporal features, it is unclear whether the observed right-lateralization of auditory speech feedback processing reflects a preference for speech feedback control or for spectral processing in general. (
  • Here we use a behavioral speech adaptation experiment with dichotically presented altered auditory feedback and an analogous fMRI experiment with binaurally presented altered feedback to confirm a right hemisphere preference for spectral feedback control and to reveal a left hemisphere preference for temporal feedback control during speaking. (
  • Auditory, but also somatosensory feedback of an utterance is analyzed to detect and correct mismatches between produced and intended speech. (
  • To date, there is no consensus on the specific contributions of the two cerebral hemispheres to auditory speech feedback control. (

  • Speech synthesis, also called text-to-speech, is the generation of synthetic speech. (
  • This paper deals with some methods of speech synthesis. (
  • Speech synthesis has very wide range of applications, which are reviewed in later part of the paper. (
  • I.INTRODUCTION Speech synthesis is the artificial production of human speech [1]. (
  • The ideal speech synthesizer is both natural and intelligible, hence speech synthesis systems usually try to maximize both characteristics. (
  • Speech synthesized methods are usually classified into three groups: Articulatory synthesis, which attempts to model the human speech production system directly. (
  • Concatenative synthesis, which uses different length prerecorded samples derived from natural speech. (
  • Formant synthesis is based on the source-filter-model of speech and most widely used synthesis method. (
  • SPEECH SYNTHESIS It considers a network with N mobile unlicensed nodes that move in an environment according to some stochastic mobility models. (
  • This section covers the some important points of speech synthesis. (
  • Computer analysis and synthesis of speech. (
  • This technique can be applied in basic phonetic research, in "silent speech interfaces", or for providing visual articulatory feedback for speech therapy, foreign language learning, or education. (
  • Skill development in use of International Phonetic Alphabet in the transcription of typical and disordered speech. (
  • Phonetic analysis, transcription of speech. (
  • Within the fully coupled multiphysics phonation process, the fluid flow plays an important role for sound production. (
  • Current and relevant topics in the fields of speech/language pathology, applied linguistics, psycholinguistics, and education with emphasis on students' coursework at Hunter College will be considered. (
  • A complete neurobiological understanding of speech motor control requires determination of the relationship between simultaneously recorded neural activity and the kinematics of the lips, jaw, tongue, and larynx. (
  • EMA uses sensor coils placed on the tongue and other parts of the mouth to measure their position and movement over time during speech and swallowing. (
  • Children with ankyloglossia, an abnormally short, thickened, or tight lingual frenulum, may have restricted tongue mobility and sequelae, such as speech and feeding difficulties and social concerns. (
  • The aim of this work is to develop an algorithm for controlling the articulators (the jaw, the tongue, the lips, the velum, the larynx and the epiglottis) to produce given speech sounds, syllables and phrases. (
  • The present study aims to compare the production of syllabic patterns of the CVC and CV types performed by Brazilian children with typical and atypical phonological development through ultrasonography of tongue. (
  • The use of a greater area of ​​the tongue by children with atypical phonological development suggests the non-differentiation of the tip and the anterior body gestures of the tongue in the production of CV and CCV. (
  • The researchers observed that during lip smacking, internal structures such as the tongue and hyoid, which houses the larynx, move in pace with the lips with a rhythm of 5 hertz - again, just as in human speech. (
  • In our research, we found that primate lip smacking and the facial component of human speech have the same frequency range, developmental trajectory and involve a similar interplay of the lips, tongue and hyoid. (
  • Sensors are attached to a patient's tongue to trace its movement during speech production. (
  • Their tongue function deteriorates fast but the jaw function is relatively preserved, and these two articulators work together for speech production. (
  • Finally, it is shown that, the fusion of speech production and speech perception mechanisms can lead to a robust feature set. (
  • The patients completed the first fMRI scan prior to beginning an experimental language rehabilitation treatment designed to improve language production through recruitment of right hemisphere mechanisms. (
  • Universal mechanisms of sound production and control in birds and mammals. (
  • In birds, the physical mechanisms by which vocalizations are produced and controlled remain unresolved because of the extreme difficulty in obtaining in vivo measurements. (
  • Monitoring speech tasks with functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) enables investigation of speech production mechanisms and informs treatment strategies for speech-related disorders such as stuttering. (
  • 1, 2 Targeted training (speech/voice therapy) can improve specific voice deficits, 3, 4 although the underlying mechanisms of behavioral interventions are not well understood. (
  • However, speech production cannot rely entirely on such slow mechanisms, because natural speech is faster than feedback control could explain 5 . (
  • The data do not support a modular view of word retrieval in speech production but rather support substantial overlap of lexical-semantic activation and word selection mechanisms in the brain. (
  • We have few testable ideas about the neural mechanisms that go awry because there is very little work on the production side of communicative expressions. (
  • So, if the neural controls for lip smacking are the same as for human speech, then further study of lip smacking in monkeys could reveal more about the brain mechanisms behind human speech. (
  • Formant and burst spectral measurements with quantitative error models for speech sound classification. (
  • In terms of pronunciation, one underlying construct of second language (L2) speaking, research targeting phonological correlates (e.g., segmentals, word stress) of L2 comprehensibility (i.e., perceived ease of understanding) draws primarily from listeners' subjective scale-based perception of monologic speech, and has shown strong associations with both segmental and suprasegmental measures.
