Speech Breathing Patterns in Speakers of Different Native Languages Studies on speech breathing patterns have typically indicated that linguistic patterns govern the place of inspiration (Winkworth, Davis, Adam, & Ellis, 1995; Winkworth, Davis, Ellis, & Adams, 1994).

Studies on speech breathing patterns have typically indicated that linguistic patterns govern the place of inspiration (Winkworth, Davis, Adam, & Ellis, 1995; Winkworth, Davis, Ellis, & Adams, 1994). For example, speakers of English generally take intersentence inspirations, or breaths between sentences or clauses, as opposed to taking breaths within sentences (i. e., intrasentence inspirations; Winkworth et al., 1995; Winkworth et al., 1994). These studies, however, have only employed native English speakers as participants. Few have included speakers of other languages, making it possible that a speaker's native language may influence speech breathing patterns.
