Teaching assistants were trained to support the delivery of a computerized intervention program to individual children over a 10-16 week period in school. Twenty-one children aged 7-12 years with(More)
This report describes the vowel formant frequency characteristics (F1-F4 of five vowels produced in a fixed phonetic context) of 42 seven and eight year old boys and girls and the relationship of vocal tract resonances to several indices of body size. Results showed that the vowel resonances of male children were consistently lower than those of females,(More)
This project was undertaken to provide information about the sexual characteristics of preadolescent children's voices. In one series of experiments, perceptual judgments of sexual identity were obtained in response to 73 children's productions of isolated whispered and normally phonated vowels, normally spoken sentences, and sentences spoken in a(More)
This report describes the longitudinal changes that took place in the average fundamental frequencies (fo) of 25 boys and girls over a 3-year period (means age range = 8:2-11:2). Results showed that developmental changes in the central tendency of fo can be detected over a 1-year period. For the group, the amount of decrease per 12-month interval averaged(More)
This investigation was undertaken to enlarge current understanding of the acoustic properties which influence the perception of maleness and femaleness in the voices of prepubertal children. Perceptual judgments of sexual identity were obtained in response to tape recordings of whispered and normally phonated vowels, normally spoken sentences, and sentences(More)

According to the suppositional theory of conditionals, people assess their belief in a conditional statement of the form "if p then q" by conducting a mental simulation on the supposition of p in which they assess their degree of belief in q. This leads to them to the judge the probability of a conditional statement to be equal to the conditional(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the proportion of UK surfers aware of external auditory canal exostosis, to identify surfer characteristics associated with knowledge of the condition and to explore attitudes to earplug use. METHOD An online, cross-sectional survey of UK-based surfers. RESULTS Of 375 surfers, 86.1 per cent (n = 323; 95 per cent confidence(More)
