I am sorry to come in late...I did not catch the original post. As a
graduate student I had a patient with a glossectomy / radical neck /ramus
etc.. My recollection is we were able to develope a set of compensatory
movements of lips/teeth & glottal stops to allow useful communication. I
reiterate I was a graduate student at the time but I believe some value
was gained by therapy.
