To assess the role of oral sensation in the execution of a stuttering moment, six adult male stutterers, ranging in severity, provided samples of spontaneous speech in three experimental conditions: control, anesthetic, and placebo. In the anesthetic condition, sensory deprivation of the oral cavity was achieved by means of a series of nerve-block(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate velopharyngeal adequacy in gerontologic subjects using an acoustic analysis strategy. Sixty normal older subjects (30 male, 30 female), ranging in age from 50 to 80, read three passages developed by Fletcher (1976) that differ in number of nasal sounds. In addition, all subjects sustained the vowel /a/. The(More)
In an effort to provide optimal patient care, perfusionists should rely on information provided by current research. Present statistics, however, document a substantial underuse of evidence-based clinical practice and therapies not only in perfusion, but throughout the entire medical field. This investigation applied a statistical method--binomial(More)
This investigation provides a preliminary evaluation of the use of the video articulator, a phonemic recognition device for the hearing impaired. The subjects were five young adults with normal hearing and vision (corrected) who were matched with respect to age, sex, dialect, education, and phonological sophistication. Each subject received 150 min of(More)
As a part of a larger study (Hutchinson and Watkin, 1974), this investigation was undertaken to examine jaw mechanics during the release of stuttering moments. Six adult subjects (four stutters, ranging in severity, and two normal talkers) read a series of sentences containing phonetic sequences requiring jaw depression. Strain-gauge transducers were(More)
If the motor theory of speech perception is at least partially true, children with articulation problems should do relatively poorly in a typical verbal transformation task. Twelve children aged from 6 yrs 10 mo to 8 years 10 mo with misarticulation of /s/ were compared with 12 matched children with normal speech. Since children with articulation errors(More)
