stew503 Posted March 14, 2012 Share Posted March 14, 2012 Recently, I am spotting nasality (specifically hyponasal, m's, n's, ng's affected - nice clear vowels though :-) (no breathiness / turbulance) ). Now i've been doing the usual in depth searching, but more information i'm after will not be published in the usual places. So - Here's the Q. Within the medical & singing coaching circles (i.e. doc's or referrals to ENT / coached noticing nasality / published material) is there an increase in hyponasality due to allergies (i.e. due to dog / cat winter coat shedding) or) an increase in Adenoid issues specifically within the Dec - March / April, than manifest symptoms of hyponasal speech ? Colds, I can understand and ... possibly colds (Through Dec to Jan) passing over to allergies (March) may result in a 3 (or so) month term of closed nasality, but if no symptoms of cold occurred, then What is the usual reasoning published (or known by coaches) i.e. allergies (pets / dander / dust mite), obstruction, T&A issues ? Hence the Q of ... within the 3 months Dec - Mar - Do you notice (or is it published) of if there an increase in referrals / heard hyponasality (and what is the usual reason (i.e. allergies) or .. is there an increase in adenoid issues within that time (and... again what is the reason).
