Example text

Pisoni et al. reported two perceptual experiments, a phonetic transcription study, and two sets of acoustic analyses. 1 Preparation of Materials Materials for recording included both auditory and visual stimuli. The auditory stimuli were 204 monosyllabic words and 66 sentences prerecorded in citation format by a male talker in the following manner. The stimuli were recorded in a sound-attenuated IAC (Industrial Acoustics Company; New York, New York) booth with an Electro-Voice (Model D054) microphone fed to an Ampex AG-500 tape recorder.

The main disadvantage is that an acoustic analysis is just that, an analysis of the speech signal itself; it provides no direct view of the pathologies that might underlie or cause the changes such as the ones observed in this study. Other clinical methods would help, such as those that could uncover laryngeal pathologies, for example, electromyography or stroboscopy. On the other hand, spectrography is capable of uncovering very small differences in the speech signal, as well as purely functional articulatory anomalies.

Other differences were not significant. 3 Discussion Collins (1980) noted that although gross patterns of syntactic performance were similar for both the alcoholic and nonalcoholic group, a further general tendency was that nonalcoholics outperformed alcoholics. In terms of the developmental scoring used here, the syntax of the nonalcoholics could be characterized as more advanced and complete. ). Collins attributed the superior performance in the wh-question category to a possible integrative language deficit.
