How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

For professionals working with multi-lingual children, detecting language deficits in a child’s home language can present a challenge. This is largely due to the scarcity of standardised assessments in many children’s home languages and missing normative data on multilingual language acquisition. A common approach is to translate existing English l...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives: The aim was to explore whether word initial onset awareness is acquired before phoneme awareness and whether onset complexity influences performance on identification tasks. In addition, the relationship between onset and phoneme awareness and letter knowledge was investigated. Method: In this study 22 monolingual German-speaking presc...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigated speaker sex differences in the temporal and spectro-temporal parameters of English monosyllabic words spoken by thirteen women and eleven men. Vowel and utterance duration were investigated. A number of formant frequency parameters were also analysed to assess the spectro-temporal dynamic structures of the monosyllabic words...
Article
Objective The aim was to explore PA skills German-speaking preschool children with cochlea implants (CIs) and how these skills may be related to their speech and language skills. Methods Three monolingual German-speaking pre-school children aged 5;04 – 6;01 with bilateral CIs were tested. Their cognitive, speech and language skills were assessed....
Article
Objective: There is a need to provide bilingual assessments and reference data to identify those who struggle to acquire their home language (L1) or the language spoken in the country of residence (L2). However, bilingual assessments and data are still sparse. Therefore, the aim was to use a tablet application to screen receptive vocabulary in diff...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study investigated speaker sex differences in F2 Locus equations (F2 LEs) based on linearly (Hz) and tonotopically (Bark) scaled formant measurements. F2 data based on English monosyllabic words produced by thirteen women and eleven men were tonotopically scaled and F2 LEs were derived for both the linear and tonotopically scaled formant value...

Article
Full-text available
Psycholinguistic research of the mid nineties suggests that articulatory routines for high frequency syllables are stored in the form of gestural scores in a library. Syllable frequency effects on naming latency and utterance duration have been interpreted as supporting evidence for such a syllabary. This paper presents a data-subset from a project...
Article
Full-text available
Levelt & Wheeldon's concept of the mental syllabary (1994) suggests that articulatory routines for syllables are stored in the form of gestural scores in a library. Cholin et al. (2006) found a syllable frequency effect on naming latency of nonsense words and interpret this as supporting evidence for the existence of such a syllabary. This paper pr...
