If there is not much of change In resonance, hyponasality is suspected.
This results in nasal competence, good speech, and limited hyponasality.

Actually, this statement is no longer true, as there are two new ICD-9 codes: 784.40 (voice and resonance disorders, unspecified) and 784.49 (other voice and resonance disorders), as well as codes for hypernasality (784.43) and hyponasality (784.44); for the more general speech disturbances, "other" (784.59) can now be used.
