  1. 1. Representing sounds and spellings : Phonological decline and compensatory working memory in acquired hearing impairment

    Author : Elisabet Classon; Jerker Rönnberg; Mary Rudner; Mikael Johansson; Nathalie Phillips; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Acquired hearing impairment; phonology; WMC; reading span; Förvärvad hörselnedsättning; fonologi; arbetsminne; lässpann;

    Abstract : This thesis examined phonological processing in adults with postlingually acquired moderate-to-severe hearing impairment (HI) and whether explicit working memory processing of phonology and individual working memory capacity (WMC) can compensate for degraded phonological representations in this group (papers I-III). A second aim was to provide reference data for a test of WMC, the reading span test, and to examine the relation between reading span test performance and speech recognition in noise in a larger sample of 50-89 year olds with HI (paper IV).

  2. 2. Dealing with Digits : Arithmetic, Memory and Phonology in Deaf Signers

    Author : Josefine Andin; Mary Rudner; Jerker Rönnberg; Örjan Dahlström; Lars Nyberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Adult deaf signers; phonology; arithmetic; short-term memory; working memory; neuro imaging; Vuxna teckenspråkiga döva; fonologi; aritmetik; korttidsminne; arbetsminne; hjärnavbildning;

    Abstract : Deafness has been associated with poor abilities to deal with digits in the context of arithmetic and memory, and language modality-specific differences in the phonological similarity of digits have been shown to influence short-term memory (STM). Therefore, the overall aim of the present thesis was to find out whether language modality-specific differences in phonological processing between sign and speech can explain why deaf signers perform at lower levels than hearing peers when dealing with digits.

    Abstract : Mainstream research on reading and writing is based on the assumption, common in modern linguistics, that spoken language is primary to written language in most important respects. Unfortunately, the conceptual framework for the study of language and 'literacy' (encompassing both reading and writing skills) is built around this assumption. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to provide both epidemiological and linguistic data on bilingual children with language impairment (LI), since few data on this group exist. Data from 438 bilingual and monolingual children, referred over a period of 12 months, were compared in the first epidemiological study. READ MORE
