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.

Good Luck
