wow.



Over 12,000 words to conclude this:


These results confirm that the speech of deaf persons differs considerably from that of speakers with normal hearing, which several authors have confirmed through their studies [citation listing over thirty studies from the last sixty years].

you don't want it, really. it took me three hours to get to that "conclusion" and you can probably imagine how interesting the study was.

that would have been more interesting, undoubtedly.

i guess if the author was deaf that conclusion might not have been obvious. but still, there were actually thirty studies on this? haha.

they had listed about thirty studies from 1943 onward, and I'm sure they all had different things to say about different aspects of the speech of hearing-impaired persons, so at a rate of about one study every other year I'd say that probably this finding inspires wooden prose as often as any other completely foregone conclusion.

they were in fact writing about vowel pronunciation in particular, but this was their big summing-up sentence.

I took a nap after this one before tackling the next 12,000-word essay. it was more interesting, but that was not so hard to achieve. :)
