Production of Sentence-Final Intonation Contours by Hearing-Impaired Children.
Allen, George D.; Arndorfer, Patricia M.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n2 p441-55 Apr 2000
This study compared the relationship between acoustic parameters and listeners' perceptions of intonation contours produced by 12 children (ages 7-14) either with severe-to-profound hearing impairments (HI) or normal-hearing (NH). The HI children's productions were generally similar to the NH children in that they used fundamental frequency, duration, and intensity cues to distinguish (although less intensely) declarative from interrogative sentences.
