Speech and aging: Article alert

For those interested in the way speech production and speech perception change in normal aging across the adult lifespan, there is a review just out from the Department of Linguistics in the University of Alberta (Tucker BV, et al., Wiley Interdiscip Rev Cogn Sci. 2021 Sep;12(5):e1557. doi: 10.1002/wcs.1557), published in the Wiley Interdisciplinary Review of Cognitive Science.

It covers acoustic characteristics potentially distinguishable in younger and older adults, and separately, correlations between speaker age and listeners' perceptions of speech. Discussion focuses on major themes and on promising areas for future research.
