Kara Hawthorne (Assistant Professor at Gallaudet)

Prosody in Speech, Language, and Speech-Language Pathology

AbstractIn this talk, I will present three studies addressing prosody in spoken language. In the first, I will discuss prosody and verb semantics as cues to pronoun interpretation in adults with intellectual disabilities versus typical development. Second, I will present findings from my recent paper on prosody as a tool for syntax acquisition, with a focus on implication for individuals learning language through cochlear implants. Finally, I will overview survey results that examine the status of prosody in speech-language pathology, including clinical practices and potential barriers to the assessment and treatment of prosody in the clinic.
