dc.description.abstractThis paper reports the results of a series of closed-set vowel identification experiments with four congenitally hearing impaired children (age 13 years) with moderate to profound bilateral sensorineural losses. Material was presented under three test conditions: hearing alone, through currently worn hearing aids; lipreading alone; and hearing plus lipreading. Analysis of the results using multidimensional scaling and hierarchical clustering revealed a strong relationship between the perceptual organisation of the responses and the physical attributes of the method of signal presentation. In the case of acoustic signals, the results indicated a perceptual organisation describable in terms of the duration of the vowel and the relative frequencies of the first and second formant. For visual signals, the perceptual organisation correlated with characteristics of lip-shaping during production. These results indicated that the subjects attempted to use similar perceptual cues as the normally hearing population. The relationship between the perceptual organisation of the acoustic stimuli and the aided audiogram is also discussed.en_US
