Module outline and aims

This course will introduce you to the instrumental techniques used to investigate speech production and their applications in the domain of speech pathology. The course consists of a theoretical component in which you will learn about the technical aspects of the analysis equipment. Furthermore, some representative research findings will be presented with respect to normal and pathological speech.

In the applied aspect of the course you will be taken through practical demonstrations and exercises relating to aspects of speech physiology (neural, respiratory, phonatory and articulatory) and speech acoustics.

Content outline

  • Neurological: neuro-imaging techniques (e.g. CAT-scan, MRI) and neuro-physiology (e.g. electromyography, evoked-response potentials).
  • Respiratory: respiratory activity in speech (e.g. pneumotachography, pressure transduction.
  • Phonatory: phonatory activity in speech (e.g. electrolaryngography).
  • Articulatory: aspects of articulation (e.g. electropalatography, articulography).
  • Speech acoustics: the acoustic analysis of speech (e.g. signal processing software: PRAAT.

Pre-requisite Modules

You are required to have a basic knowledge of speech production processes and articulatory phonetics.

Non EEA students can only apply as part of a programme, not as a stand-alone module.

  • First or second-class honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate subject
  • The Licentiate Diploma of the Royal college of Speech and Language Therapists is also accepted.

Individuals with less than a second class degree will be considered where they have substantial relevant experience (Clinical, teaching or other relevant professional experience).

English Requirements

For those students whose first language is not English, the following qualification is also required:

  • IELTS: 7.0

Please note that due to changes in the UKVI's list of SELTs we are no longer able to accept TOEFL as evidence of English language for students who require a CAS as of April 2014.
