SIG 5 Perspectives Vol. 23, No. 1, July 2013
This issue includes an invited paper by the 2012 Zemlin Memorial lecturer on the importance of the connection between concepts and theory behind speech science and how we investigate speech behaviors. In addition, two papers on infant speech behaviors, including respiration and acoustics of cries, are provided.
You will be able to:
- state the potential advantages and disadvantages of using a measure such as the acoustically-measured vowel space area as an index of the integrity of speech motor control
- state the possible contributions of a general measure of articulatory movement reduction versus segment-specific movement characteristics to estimates of speech intelligibility in motor speech disorders
- contrast adult speech breathing to infant speech-related breathing
- identify the rationale for the use of cries to infer infant health status
- identify health issues that can be examined through the use of infant cries
- describe relationships between infant cry fundamental frequency and infant physiology
