The Phonetics of Dysarthria

ID: 3024 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

The Phonetics of Dysarthria provides a broad overview of dysarthria, as well as coverage of three distinct studies of the phonetic features and phonological implications of the speech disorder. The large scope of the book ensures that clinical practitioners, linguists, speech scientists, and advanced undergraduate or graduate students alike can find new insights into dysarthria. The first chapters cover the effects of dysarthria in Greek through the acoustic and perceptual investigation of the realization of lexical stress. Prosodic characteristics of a variety of dysarthric speech, including speech in highly controlled and spontaneous conditions, are investigated in relationship to perceived speech naturalness in American English as well. The last chapters use the framework of interactional phonetics to look at conversational repair and the phonetics of self-repair in individuals with dysarthria. The studies in this volume contribute a distinctive approach to the subject by using impressionistic, acoustic segmental, and suprasegmental analyses to investigate this wide variety of aspects to the motor speech disorder. The cross-linguistic phonetic data included also provides a novel contribution to the literature on dysarthria.
