BACKGROUND Laryngopharyngeal reflux is a prevalent, not well-understood disease affecting a high proportion of patients who seek laryngology consultation. The objective of this prospective case series is to explore the subjective and objective voice modifications in Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), especially the usefulness of acoustic parameters as(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with basal ganglia motor loop dysfunction and impairment of the dopamine pathway. It is mainly characterized with the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons. The core symptoms may include akinesia as well as bradykinesia, rigidity and/or resting tremor, which may all contribute to a wide(More)
Transgender persons constitute a small but growing population in ENT department: as a matter of fact, many voice parameters significantly contribute to the perception of gender (fundamental frequency, supraglottic resonance patterns, etc.). The persons involved in transition processes may therefore aim at changing their own voice properties, either by means(More)
In this paper, we introduce the concept of "phonetic compliance," which is defined as the intrinsic individual ability to produce speech sounds that are unusual in the native language, and constitutes a part of the ability to acquire L2 phonetics and phonology. We argue that phonetic compliance represents a systematic source of variance that needs to be(More)
This paper provides a comparative gestural account of nasal vowels in Southern French (Marseille, Toulouse; France) and in Northern French (Liège, Tournai; Belgium). Timing measurements based on acoustic data confirm a different temporal organisation of the gestures between the two regiolects. We also report on statistical comparisons between phonetic(More)
Dans cette étude, nous explorons l'effet de l'orientation de l'attention sur la catégorisation de sons de parole. Nous orientons l'attention des sujets de deux manières : par des instructions qui les informent quant aux indices à utiliser comme critères pour le classement des sons et par l'apport d'un feedback. Nos résultats au terme d'une expérience de 15(More)
This paper is focused on the contribution of phonetic tools used in prosody analyzes for the study of stuttering. Three contrasted subjects (1 Non Stuttering Person, NPS and 2 Person Who Stutter, PWS with contrasted stuttering profiles) have been recorded while performing a map task under varying auditory feedback conditions (NAF, DAF 80, DAF 120 & DAF(More)
