This article addresses the recognition of reduced word forms, which are frequent in casual speech. We describe two experiments on Dutch showing that listeners only recognize highly reduced forms well when these forms are presented in their full context and that the probability that a listener recognizes a word form in limited context is strongly correlated(More)
The aim of this study was to enhance our insight into the underlying deficit in developmental apraxia of speech (DAS). In particular, the involvement of planning and/or programming of speech movements in context was tested by analysing coarticulatory cohesion. For this purpose, second formant frequency measurements were conducted in repetitions of nonsense(More)
The aim of this study is to quantify diagnostic characteristics related to consonant production of developmental verbal dyspraxia (DVD). For this, a paradigmatic and syntagmatic feature-value analysis of the consonant substitution and omission errors in DVD speech was conducted. Following a three-step procedure, eleven clear cases were selected from a group(More)
The reading comprehension and visual word recognition in 50 deaf children and adolescents with at least 3 years of cochlear implant (CI) use were evaluated. Their skills were contrasted with reference data of 500 deaf children without CIs. The reading comprehension level in children with CIs was expected to surpass that in deaf children without implants,(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether children with developmental apraxia of speech (DAS) show a deficit in planning syllables in speech production. Six children with DAS and six normally speaking (NS) children produced high- and low-frequency of occurrence syllable utterances, in which the syllable structure was systematically manipulated(More)
The objective of the study was to assess the bioavailability and absorption dynamics of intranasal insulin (with di-decanoyl-alpha-phosphatidylcholine, DDPC, as absorption enhancer) in two potencies (U200 and U500). Toward this aim, the euglycemic clamp technique combined with somatostatin (100 micrograms/h) was used. Insulin was administered to 12 healthy(More)
This study addresses the assessment of developmental apraxia of speech (DAS) in children. For this, 11 children with a clear diagnosis of DAS were selected, based on documented speech history and perceptual evaluation of speech. The children with DAS, as well as 11 normal-speaking children, produced singleton real word and nonsense word imitations elicited(More)
A method is presented for determining mixtures of calcium dodecylbenzene-sulphonate (CaDBS) and ethoxylated alkylphenols in pesticidal emulsifiable concentrates. The pesticide formulations are adsorbed on a pre-concentration column. The active ingredients, the solvents and the emulsifiers are eluted successively by using solvents with increasing polarities.(More)
Methods are presented for determining diisobutyl and diisopropylnaphthalenesulphonates in pesticides formulated as wettable powders or water dispersible granules. The dispersing agents were concentrated on anion-exchange cartridges and after removal of interfering substances eluted with methanol containing 5% hydrochloric acid. The various isomers were(More)
