Gemensamt postseminarum följer på eftermiddagens tre seminarier.
För att fira våra gemensamma intressen – men kanske också för att smälta intrycken från denna intensiva eftermiddag – är alla som önskar välkomna att ansluta till ett gemensamt post-seminarium på restaurang (på egen bekostnad). Meddela gärna om du vill delta på post-seminariet till sofia.strombergsson@ki.se (senast 24/5), så att tillräckligt antal bord kan bokas.

Abstract
The interplay between speech production and speech perception is intriguing in typical speech acquisition, and central in the study of children with speech impairments. In the first part of this talk, I will present work I have done within the area of children’s misarticulated speech – particularly relating to how these children perceive their own speech. This part will also include the presentation of a more recent investigation of the gradient perceptual nature of children’s “substitutions” of [t] for /k/.

In the second part of the talk, focus is shifted from the specific nature of speech errors/idiosyncrasies per se towards what linguistic and communicative effects they may have when occurring in connected speech. A novel approach for registering listener reactions during the playback of continuous speech will be introduced, and experiences from pilot trials using this method will be presented. I will also outline our plans to exploit computational linguistics in the exploration of linguistic effects of different speech error patterns. Through these studies, we aim to address questions regarding the linguistic consequences of specific speech errors across different languages, and across different contexts (e.g. spontaneous speech vs. isolated words in speech assessment tests). In combining these approaches, we expect to learn more about the perceptual, linguistic and communicative effects of misarticulated speech – knowledge that may have direct clinical value in the prioritizing of therapeutic targets.

Hjärtligt välkomna!
