Medical Machines in Language-Speech Assessment

Abstract: Experimental clinical phonetics is a flourishing science that uses clinical machines to have a clear image of how human speech sounds are produced. Using imaging or neurological examination machines shows what organs of speech are involved in different speech sounds and what muscles are activated during their production. Nasoendoscopy, videoflurouscopy, electromyography are what a team of researchers usually use in this regard. With a group phoneticians, speech-language therapists, clinicians and radiologists we collect data, describe normal sounds production and understand speech disorders in Arabic. The talk will highlight the approach of what experimental clinical phonetics and shed light on three experiments done by experts at Jordan University of Science and technology.
