Sawyer, Chris R.; Richey, Delwin E.; Goen, Karley A. – Communication Education, 2019
Previous studies of grading as instructional feedback reveal contrary patterns of motivation among public speaking students.

Nippold, Marilyn A.; Mansfield, Tracy C.; Billow, Jesse L. – American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, 2007
Purpose: Expository discourse, the use of language to convey information, requires facility with complex syntax. Although expository discourse is often employed in school and work settings, little is known about its development in children, adolescents, and adults. Hence, it is difficult to evaluate this genre in students who have language…

Nielsen, Diane Corcoran; Luetke, Barbara; McLean, Meigan; Stryker, Deborah – American Annals of the Deaf, 2016
Research suggests that English-language proficiency is critical if students who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) are to read as their hearing peers. One explanation for the traditionally reported reading achievement plateau when students are D/HH is the inability to hear insalient English morphology. Signing Exact English can provide visual…

Syrika, Asimina; Nicolaidis, Katerina; Edwards, Jan; Beckman, Mary E. – Language and Speech, 2011
Previous work on children's acquisition of complex sequences points to a tendency for affricates to be acquired before clusters, but there is no clear evidence of a difference in order of acquisition between clusters with /s/ that violate the Sonority Sequencing Principle (SSP), such as /s/ followed by stop in onset position, and other clusters…

Nittrouer, Susan; Lowenstein, Joanna H. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2007
Purpose: It has been reported that children and adults weight differently the various acoustic properties of the speech signal that support phonetic decisions. This finding is generally attributed to the fact that the amount of weight assigned to various acoustic properties by adults varies across languages, and that children have not yet…

Background: Much remains unknown about grammatical morpheme (GM) acquisition by children with moderate hearing impairment (HI) acquiring spoken English. Aims: To investigate how moderate HI impacts on the use of GMs in speech and to provide an explanation for the pattern of findings. Methods & Procedures: Elicited and spontaneous speech data were…
