Age differences in voice evaluation (Lortie et al., 2018)

Catherine L. Lortie, Isabelle Deschamps, Matthieu J. Guitton & Pascale Tremblay
Purpose: The factors that influence the evaluation of voice in adulthood, as well as the consequences of such evaluation on social interactions, are not well understood. Here, we examined the effect of listeners’ age and the effect of talker age, sex, and smoking status on the auditory-perceptual evaluation of voice, voice-related psychosocial attributions, and perceived speech tempo. We also examined the voice dimensions affecting the propensity to engage in social interactions.Method: Twenty-five younger (age 19–37...

Parents’ perspectives on integrating AAC into life (O’Neill & Wilkinson, 2020)

Phonetic contrasts in Cantonese tone acquisition (Mok et al., 2020)

Peggy Pik Ki Mok, Vivian Guo Li & Holly Sze Ho Fung
Purpose: Previous studies showed both early and late acquisition of Cantonese tones based on transcription data using different criteria, but very little acoustic data were reported. Our study examined Cantonese tone acquisition using both transcription and acoustic data, illustrating the early and protracted aspects of Cantonese tone acquisition.Method: One hundred fifty-nine Cantonese-speaking children aged between 2;1 and 6;0 (years;months) and 10 reference speakers participated in a tone production experiment based on picture naming. Natural production...

Sketch and Speak intervention (Ukrainetz, 2018)

Teresa A. Ukrainetz
Purpose: This preliminary study investigated an intervention procedure employing 2 types of note-taking and oral practice to improve expository reporting skills.Procedure: Forty-four 4th to 6th graders with language-related learning disabilities from 9 schools were assigned to treatment or control conditions that were balanced for grade, oral language, and other features. The treatment condition received 6 30-min individual or pair sessions from the school of speech-language pathologists (SLPs). Treatment involved reducing statements from grade-level science articles...

Auditory–cognitive: HA acclimatization in SNHL (Megha & Maruthy, 2019)

Megha & Sandeep Maruthy
Purpose: The study aimed to investigate the underlying mechanisms of perceived benefit of hearing aid acclimatization. Specifically, measures in the auditory and cognitive domain were tapped to investigate its relationship with the perceived benefit.Method: Twenty-six individuals with sensorineural hearing loss served as participants for the study. The perceived benefit of hearing aid use was assessed using the Speech, Spatial and Qualities of Hearing Scale (SSQ; Gatehouse & Noble, 2004). Signal-to-noise ratio-50 (SNR-50) and acceptable noise...

Quantifying apical and laminal /s/ (Stone et al., 2019)

Maureen Stone, Arnold D. Gomez, Jiachen Zhuo, Ange Lydie Tchouaga & Jerry L. Prince
Purpose: Anterior tongue shape during /s/ production is often described as “tip-up” or apical, versus “tipdown” or laminal. Typically, this is determined by observing the shape of the anterior midline tongue. The purpose of this study was to identify methods of curvature calculation that quantify the observed shape differences and to examine whether the shape differences were affected by palate shape. Previous work shows that palate height has some effect (Grimm et al., 2017).Method: Four...

Effect sizes in single-case aphasia studies (Archer et al., 2019)

Brent Archer, Jamie H. Azios, Nicole Müller & Lauren Macatangay
Purpose: In single-case treatment studies, researchers may compare client performance during a baseline, nontreatment phase(s) to client performance during intervention phases. Autocorrelation in the data series gathered during such studies increases the likelihood that analysts will detect or fail to detect meaningful differences between baseline and treatment phase data. We examined the impact that autocorrelation has on 4 effect size calculation methods when these methods are applied to data generated by people with aphasia during...

Gender differences (Bradford Wainwright, 2019)

Angela Bradford Wainwright
Purpose: The narrative is an important component of cognitive–linguistic assessment of nonmainstream populations and provides a valuable basis on which to conduct crossethnic/cultural comparisons. Given that there is limited information on the narrative characteristics of African American adults, this study was designed to describe the nature of narrative productions among African American men and women and to determine if gender differences exist in those productions.Method: Seventy-six African American adults—40 women (ages 46–86 years) and 36...

Non-orthographic language abilities and reading (Madden et al., 2018)

Elizabeth Brookshire Madden, Tim Conway, Maya L. Henry, Kristie A. Spencer, Kathryn M. Yorkston & Diane L. Kendall
Purpose: This study investigated the relationship between non-orthographic language abilities and reading in order to examine assumptions of the primary systems hypothesis and further our understanding of language processing poststroke. Method: Performance on non-orthographic semantic, phonologic, and syntactic tasks, as well as oral reading and reading comprehension tasks, was assessed in 43 individuals with aphasia. Correlation and regression analyses were conducted to determine the relationship between these measures. In addition, analyses of variance examined differences...
