Background. Speech production in noisy environments is known to elicit the Lombard effect, which has been described as an involuntary increase to vocal loudness against background noise. Many studies have explored the auditory-perceptual mechanisms that contribute to the Lombard effect; however,...
Respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory adjustments to changes in vocal loudness in typically developing children and children with spastic-type cerebral palsyDownload
This study explored the physiological adjustments made by the speech mechanism when sustained maximum phonations and sentences differing in vocal loudness were produced by typically developing children and children with cerebral palsy (CP). Respiratory adjustments (lung volume initiation,...
The effects of vocal loudness and speaking rate on voice-onset time in typically developing children and children with cochlear implantsDownload
This study explores the effects of manipulating vocal loudness and speech rate on voice onset time (VOT) in normal hearing children and two children with cochlear implants (CIs). 15 normal hearing participants and two participants with CIs produced all six stop consonants in the phrase “It’s a...
