Finding Meaning in ‘Rick and Morty,’ One Burp at a Time

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

One of the first things viewers of “Rick and Morty” might notice about Rick is his penchant for punctuating his speech with burps. Brooke Kidner has analyzed the frequency and acoustics of belching while speaking, and by zeroing in on the specific pitches and sound qualities of a midspeech burp, aims to find what latent linguistic meaning might be found in the little-studied gastrointestinal grumbles. Kidner will present her findings at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Newswise: Toward a more civil discourse

Toward a more civil discourse

Washington University in St. Louis

In our current climate of sometimes intense vitriol, reappropriation — by which a group of people reclaims words or artifacts that were previously used in a way disparaging of that group — can tame uncivil discourse, finds a new study by political scientists and a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis.

University at Buffalo

What can reading 26,000 books tell researchers about how language environment affects language behavior? Brendan T. Johns, an assistant professor of communicative disorders and sciences at UB has published a computational modeling study that suggests our experience and interaction with specific learning environments, like the characteristics of what we read, leads to differences in language behavior that were once attributed to differences in cognition.

Newswise: Sibling Bond Gets Brother with Large Brain Tumor the Best Care

Sibling Bond Gets Brother with Large Brain Tumor the Best Care

Nuvance Health

When Gary Colon, 51, of Miami, Florida suddenly had trouble speaking, he called his sister, Becky, of Stratford, Connecticut for help. She urged him to go to an emergency department, where he had tests that revealed a meningioma. This large brain tumor was indenting and injuring the speech area of his brain. Becky quickly made arrangements for Gary to come home and have brain surgery at Norwalk Hospital, where she’s worked for 17 years and knew he would get the best care. Norwalk Hospital is equipped to handle these types of brain surgery cases because of the highly trained neurosurgeons, and seasoned physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants, operating room staff, and intensive care unit staff who work so well together.
