In this issue of Perspectives we continue to focus on the topic of nasality. We are privileged once again to have two distinguished colleagues, H. Timothy Bunnell and David Zajac, offer their expertise in this area. Their contributions are excellent companion pieces to the work by Buder and Jones published earlier in the July issue. Put together, these four papers have undoubtedly enhanced our understanding of nasality from both the speech science and clinical perspectives.
Tim Bunnell provides an exciting “hands on” experience for the acoustic analysis of nasal and nasalized segments using a software program called EDW. This speech analysis software can be downloaded from his laboratory Web site and used for research and clinical practice. Following this, David Zajac presents to the reader the fundamental concepts and standard techniques of pressure-flow testing and nasometry, adding some novel procedural approaches to maximize data collection. These modifications will certainly extend our clinical application of these tools.
