Voice onset in pathologic speakers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The time interval between the release and beginning of vocal cord vibration in word-initial /p/ and /b/ was measured. The data from subjects with laryngeal pathology are described. /b/ showed larger values compared with the data from normals. It is suggested that such a test of vocal initiation could provide a useful measure for the evaluation of laryngeal dysfunction.
