Physical Linguistics.
Tice, Bradley S.
Physical linguistics is defined as the use of treatments from the field of speech pathology to enhance first and second language production in healthy individuals, resulting in increased quality and strength of phonation and articulation. A series of exercises for treating dysarthria (weakness, paralysis, discoordination, primary and secondary sensory deprivation, and alteration in tone of speech musculature), drawn from speech pathology texts, is outlined. Materials needed include tongue depressor, sterile gauze pads, and sterile rubber gloves. Theory underlying the treatments, areas to be improved by use of the exercises, determination of baseline performance, need, and objectives, and methods of recording procedures are discussed, and the procedures themselves are described. Forms for charting progress in tone improvement and strengthening throughout treatment are appended. (MSE)
