The Why and How of Hearing /s/.
Rudmin, Floyd
Volta Review, v85 n6 p263-69 Oct-Nov 1983
The sound /s/ is a problem for hearing-impaired children because most ear-level hearing aids and earmolds are not efficient in amplifying and transmitting high-frequency acoustic energy. With appropriate wideband hearing aids and wideband earmolds, fricatives such as /s/ should be audible to children with even a severe hearing loss. (Author/CL)
