Cranial nerves are involved in head and neck function, and processes such as eating, speech and facial expression. This clinically oriented survey of cranial nerve anatomy and function was written for students of medicine, dentistry and speech therapy, but will also be useful for postgraduate physicians and general practitioners, and specialists in head and neck healthcare (surgeons, dentists, speech therapists, etc.). After an introductory section surveying cranial nerve organization and tricky basics such as ganglia, nuclei and brain stem...
The growing availability of spoken language corpora presents new opportunities for enriching the methodologies of speech and language therapy. In this paper, we present a novel approach for constructing speech motor exercises, based on linguistic knowledge extracted from spoken language corpora. In our study with the Dutch Spoken Corpus, syllabic inventories were obtained by means of automatic syllabiﬁcation of the spoken language data.

At one time or another, most families will need to provide
home care for a family member who is ill, aging, or disabled.
Sometimes, health problems such as the flu are temporary and
familiar. At other times a loved one’s health problems, such as

cared for in his or her own home.
Delimiting word boundaries in a speech stream is no easier than trying
to determine them in the previous paragraph. So how do young infants
crack the sound code? They perform frequency analyses. Take for
example the sound sequence What a pretty baby you are.
This paper concerns the implementation and testing of similarity metrics for the alignment of phonetic segments in transcriptions of children's (mis)articulations with the adult model. This has an obvious application in the development of software to assist speech and language clinicians to assess clients and to plan therapy. This paper will give some of the background to this general problem, but will focus on the computational and linguistic aspect of the alignment problem.
