Comment évaluer la gestion temporelle de la parole ? Application à la dysarthrie wilsonienne

Abstract : This paper aims to describe the influence of different speech tasks and dual speech-activity tasks on speech timing management. In order to evaluate the influence of reading, diadochokinesis and production of automatic speech series on articulatory rate and pauses, 10 patients with Wilson’s disease dysarthria and 40 control speakers were recruited. The results reveal an important inter-speaker variability and show that speech timing management was affected by the type of speech task in both participating speaker groups, while it seems that no influence was observed for the dual tasks. Besides, dysarthric patients have slower articulatory rate and their pauses are more frequent and longer. Furthermore, comparison across speech tasks revealed that although they all affected speech timing management, the impact was task specific. The main conclusion that can be drawn from our study is that reading, diadochokinesis and automatic speech series are complementary and must be included in dysarthria assessment. Further large scale studies are needed to confirm the results of this qualitative analysis.
