Patro, Chhayakanta; Mendel, Lisa Lucks – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The main goal of this study was to investigate the minimum amount of sensory information required to recognize spoken words (isolation points [IPs]) in listeners with cochlear implants (CIs) and investigate facilitative effects of semantic contexts on the IPs. Method: Listeners with CIs as well as those with normal hearing (NH)…

Holt, Colleen M.; Lee, Kathy Y. S.; Dowell, Richard C.; Vogel, Adam P. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to assess Cantonese word recognition and the discrimination of Cantonese tones with manipulated contours by child and adolescent cochlear implant (CI) users and a group of peers with normal hearing (NH). It was hypothesized that the CI users would perform more poorly than their counterparts with NH in both…

Kelley, Elizabeth; Leary, Emily; Goldstein, Howard – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: To effectively implement a response to intervention approach, there is a need for timely and specific information about student learning in response to treatment to ensure that treatment decisions are appropriate. This exploratory study examined responsivity to a supplemental, Tier 2 vocabulary intervention delivered to preschool children…

Shport, Irina A. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The goal of this study was to test whether fronting and lengthening of lax vowels influence the perception of femininity in listeners whose dialect is characterized as already having relatively fronted and long lax vowels in male and female speech. Method: Sixteen English words containing the /? ? ? ?/ vowels were produced by a male…

Ferguson, Sarah Hargus; Morgan, Shae D. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine talker differences for subjectively rated speech clarity in clear versus conversational speech, to determine whether ratings differ for young adults with normal hearing (YNH listeners) and older adults with hearing impairment (OHI listeners), and to explore effects of certain talker characteristics…

Dale, Philip S.; Rice, Mabel L.; Rimfeld, Kaili; Hayiou-Thomas, Marianna E. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: There is a need for well-defined language phenotypes suitable for adolescents in twin studies and other large-scale research projects. Rice, Hoffman, and Wexler (2009) have developed a grammatical judgment measure as a clinical marker of language impairment, which has an extended developmental range to adolescence. Method: We conducted…

Ross, Gail; Demaria, Rebecca; Yap, Vivien – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The aim of this study is to determine if there is a specific association between motor delays and receptive and expressive language function, respectively, in prematurely born children. Method: Retrospective data review: 126 premature children = 1,250-g birthweight from English-speaking families were evaluated on motor development…

Rice, Mabel L.; Zubrick, Stephen R.; Taylor, Catherine L.; Hoffman, Lesa; Gayán, Javier – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: This study investigates the heritability of language, speech, and nonverbal cognitive development of twins at 4 and 6 years of age. Possible confounding effects of twinning and zygosity, evident at 2 years, were investigated among other possible predictors of outcomes. Method: The population-based twin sample included 627 twin pairs and 1…

Castilla-Earls, Anny; Fulcher-Rood, Katrina – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: This feasibility study examines the convergent and divergent validity of the Grammaticality and Utterance Length Instrument (GLi), a tool designed to assess the grammaticality and average utterance length of a child's prerecorded story retell. Method: Three raters used the GLi to rate audio-recorded story retells from 100 English-speaking…

Gunjawate, Dhanshree R.; Ravi, Rohit; Bellur, Rajashekhar – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: Singers are vocal athletes having specific demands from their voice and require special consideration during voice evaluation. Presently, there is a lack of standards for acoustic evaluation in them. The aim of the present study was to systematically review the available literature on the acoustic analysis of voice in singers. Method: A…

Zimmerman, Emily – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: This study examined the extent to which children born preterm (< 37 weeks) and/or who have low birth weight (< 2,500 g) catch up with their full term peers in terms of their language abilities at early school age (= 5 to < 9 years). Method: A systematic literature search identified empirical studies that fit the inclusion…

Uilenburg, Noëlle; Wiefferink, Karin; Verkerk, Paul; van Denderen, Margot; van Schie, Carla; Oudesluys-Murphy, Ann-Marie – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: A screening tool called the "VTO Language Screening Instrument" (VTO-LSI) was developed to enable more uniform and earlier detection of language impairment. This report, consisting of 2 retrospective studies, focuses on the effects of using the VTO-LSI compared to regular detection procedures. Method: Study 1 retrospectively…

Ferrer, Carlos A.; Haderlein, Tino; Maryn, Youri; de Bodt, Marc S.; Nöth, Elmar – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The aim of the study was to address the reported inconsistencies in the relationship between objective acoustic measures and perceptual ratings of vocal quality. Method: This tutorial moves away from the more widely examined problems related to obtaining the perceptual ratings and the acoustic measures and centers in less scrutinized…

Azul, David; Arnold, Aron; Neuschaefer-Rube, Christiane – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there are indications of gender-related voice problems in our transmasculine participants and to analyze how discrepancies between participant self-evaluations and researcher-led examinations can be best negotiated to ensure a participant-centered interpretation. Method: We conducted a…

Robillard, Manon; Roy-Charland, Annie; Cazabon, Sylvie – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: This study examined the role of cognition on the navigational process of a speech-generating device (SGD) among individuals with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The objective was to investigate the role of various cognitive factors (i.e., cognitive flexibility, sustained attention, categorization, fluid reasoning, and…
