Prosody in clinical practice

14-day Free Access Book Chapter: July 13-27

 

In a pleasing 'first' for @WeSpeechies, J&R Press have kindly enabled 14-day free access to Chapter 2 of 'Speech Prosody in Atypical Populations' by Vesna Stojanovik @StojanovikV and Jane Setter @JaneSetter. The chapter is 'Prosody in Two Genetic Disorders: Williams and Down syndrome' [download]. In it, the authors explore approaches to assessing prosody in these two populations of children, with coverage of the PEPS-C battery (Peppé, McCann and Gibbon, 2003), measurement of pitch range, and the use of perceptual data.

The current @WeSpeechies curator, Rachael-Anne Knight @r_a_knight, is a J&R co-author with Nicole Whitworth @NWhitworth1971, who curated the handle in June 2014. In their 'Methods in Teaching Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics' they showcase best practice in teaching and learning in the clinical linguistics and phonetics field.
