2017 Student Research Conference:
30th Annual Student Research Conference

Speech Characteristics of College Aged Students
Erynn P. Skoglund* and Cassidy M. Main
Dr. Amy Teten, Faculty Mentor

The purpose of this research was to determine if there were certain activities that college students participate in, which predict presence of glottal fry. Participants were asked to complete demographic surveys, items related to activities on a college campus, a survey related to vocal habits, and an informal personality quiz. (The first two tools were designed by the researchers while the second pair of tools were adapted from published works.) Conversational samples and reading samples for each participant were subjectively evaluated for presence of glottal fry. Data collected was evaluated for participation patterns and/or personality traits that best predicted presence of glottal fry. Data analysis was not available prior to this submission deadline, but will be completed before the convention. Results will be verbally and graphically portrayed.
