This chapter reports on empirical findings detailing interactions between language and motor domains in normally developing and language disordered learners. It shows that speech motor variability may serve as an index of learning, one that changes as a function of both perceptual and production input. Further, articulatory and linguistic production units interact in complex ways, with changes in segmental, lexical, and prosodic variables showing broadly distributed effects on speech motor output. Finally, as demonstrated in previous studies, language and generalized motor impairments co-occur. However, the specific nature of these interactions is complex, with speech motor skills implicated, but no evidence of a generalized timing deficit. Empirical data of this sort will ultimately contribute to a more comprehensive model of language production that incorporates perceptual, language, and speech motor components.

Keywords:   generalized motor impairments, speech motor skills, learning, timing deficits
