Professor & Graduate Program Director

Professional Summary

Suzanne Boyce, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and has been in CAHS since 1997. She has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Yale University and a C. A. G. S. in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University. She studies the differences in motor control strategies for speech across languages and has published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, the Journal of Phonetics, and Phonetica. Her current work specifically examines the motor control of the tongue for difficult sounds in children with resistant speech sound disorders. She is also interested in problems with difficult sounds in later childhood signal a disordered path in acquiring motor control of the tongue. She believes that articulatory timing information can be extracted from the speech signal and used to guide clinical intervention. Her studies have been funded by the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) and she is currently seeking funding from National Science Foundation. She expects that her future work will test/explore the application of Ultrasound Feedback to Second Language Learning. In 10-20 years, Dr. Boyce most hopes to be known for pioneering ultrasound feedback technology, making phonetic knowledge about tongue motor control relevant for clinical use, and finding clinical use for knowledge about tongue movement timing control. She would also like to leave a teaching legacy of a database for development of laboratory exercises on disordered speech.

Research and Practice Interests

My main interests lie in the intersection of phonology and phonetics across normal and disordered speech and language. My expertise lies in the interaction of articulation and acoustics of speech. Current reseach concerns acoustical modeling of vocal tract shapes during liquid consonants, and in imaging the movement of speech articulators.
