Considering Dysarthria: A Speech Disorder 'On the Margins'

- Considering Dysarthria: A Speech Disorder 'On the Margins' The goal of this paper is to portray dysarthria, a language impairment, as a disorder that is "on the margins" of the category of speech disorders.

Language is arguably one if not the most complex functions produced by the human brain, and one that is all but transparent as to the underlying neurological structures and processes in that so much is goin...   [tags: Biology Essays Research Papers]
