Speakers with a defective velopharyngeal mechanism produce speech with inappropriate nasal resonance (hypernasal speech). It is of clinical interest to detect hypernasality as it is indicative of an anatomical, neurological, or peripheral nervous system problem. There are various clinical techniques used to determine hypernasality. The current techniques are physically invasive or intrusive to some extent. A preferred approach for detecting hypernasality, would be noninvasive to maximize… CONTINUE READING
