Kent, Raymond D.; Eichhorn, Julie; Wilson, Erin M.; Suk, Youmi; Bolt, Daniel M.; Vorperian, Houri K. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine how the speech disorder profiles in Down syndrome (DS) relate to reduced intelligibility, atypical overall quality, and impairments in the subsystems of speech production (phonation, articulation, resonance, and prosody). Method: Auditory-perceptual ratings of intelligibility, overall quality, and…

Meng, Zhu; Lan, Zebo; Yan, Guoli; Marsh, John E.; Liversedge, Simon P. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2020
Task-irrelevant background sound can disrupt performance of visually based cognitive tasks. The cross-modal breakdown of attentional selectivity in the context of reading was addressed using analyses of eye movements. Moreover, the study addressed whether task-sensitivity to distraction via background speech on reading was modulated by the…

Lee, Sungmin; Mendel, Lisa Lucks; Bidelman, Gavin M. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: Although the speech intelligibility index (SII) has been widely applied in the field of audiology and other related areas, application of this metric to cochlear implants (CIs) has yet to be investigated. In this study, SIIs for CI users were calculated to investigate whether the SII could be an effective tool for predicting speech…

Corps, Ruth E.; Gambi, Chiara; Pickering, Martin J. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2020
During conversation, interlocutors often produce their utterances with little overlap or gap between their turns. But what mechanism underlies this striking ability to time articulation appropriately? In 2 verbal "yes/no" question-answering experiments, we investigated whether listeners use the speech rate of questions to time…
