Background: Every language has certain specific idiosyncrasies in its writing system. Cross-linguistic analyses of alexias and agraphias are fundamental to understand commonalities and differences in the brain organization of written language. Few reports of alexias and agraphias in the Spanish language are currently available. Aims: To analyse…

Sherratt, Sue; Bryan, Karen – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Knowledge of the discourse performance of non-brain-damaged individuals is critical not only for its differentiation from disordered expression but also for more accurate models of ageing and communication. The effect of ageing and cognitive skills on the cohesive adequacy of discourse has, until now, presented a confusing and…

Early identification of swallowing and voice dysfunction would…

Bailey, Dallin J.; Bunker, Lisa; Mauszycki, Shannon; Wambaugh, Julie L. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) involves speech-production deficits on both the segmental and suprasegmental levels. Recent research has identified a non-linear interaction between the metrical structure of bisyllabic words and word-production accuracy in German speakers with AOS, with trochaic words (strong-weak stress) being…

Background: Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) has a heterogeneous presentation and is often identified late or misdiagnosed.

Background: The need for effective compensatory strategies in neurogenic dysphagia management has led to the exploration of sensory enhancement strategies (SES), such as carbonated liquids. Despite some positive findings, evidence related to the efficacy of carbonation as an SES is limited. Aims: To determine if carbonated thin liquids reduced…
