The article’s purpose was to provide normative data for phonological development of British-English speaking children. The article focused on two aspects of speech development: the age of acquisition of sounds such a phonetic acquisition and the age in which error patterns stopped. In addition, this article discussed the effects that age, socioeconomic status and gender may have on speech sound development. The authors hypothesized that girls would display higher levels of phonological accuracy as compared to boys and that children from higher socio-economic families would have higher levels of phonological skills than children from low socio-economic families. It was also hypothesized that phonological skills should develop with age, that
While language or communication can be written, speech communication remains one of the main ways in which human beings express themselves. As such, correct pronunciation of words is essential in effective communication. A breakdown of the pronounced words gives the individual components comprising of consonants and vowels. As such, the understanding of consonants and vowels is critical to the correct pronunciation of any word in any language. This paper focuses on
I will determine whether [æ] and [eʌ] appear to be allophonic or contrastive by examining those target sounds in “Dataset B” and “Dataset A”. Both sounds are present in the datasets but they are never seen together in the same word. The environments of the sounds are determined in (i) and organized by sound to see if there are any patterns that arise.
Farrah has able to identify 186/220, or 85%, of basic sight words and 103/143, or 72%, of basic sight word phrases. Continually, Farrah attended to initial consonants making visually similar miscues, such as “one” for “on,” “gave” for “give,” and “these” for “those.” In addition, Farrah consistently substituted short vowel sounds for long vowel sounds, such as “cam” for “came,” “want” for “wait,” and “bring” for “bright.” . Farrah made similar miscues during the basic sight word phrase assessment, such as “can” for “came,” “use” for “us” and “cute” for “cut.” Both the reliance on initial consonants and the inconsistency of middle vowel sounds suggest that Farrah is unfamiliar with long vowel patterns
There are phonological rules that differ among African American English and Standard American English. One such difference includes the “r-deletion” which deletes /r/ everywhere except before a vowel. For example, instead of the SAE production of guard, an AAE speaker may say god (Fromkin et al., 2011). The “l-deletion” is another phonological characteristic that varies from SAE. For example, making same-sounding pairs like toll and toe (Fromkin et al., 2011). Also distinct is the glide reduction. It applies to both /ai/ and /au/ with the slight withdrawal of the onset of the second diphthong which maintains the division between the two phonemes as in wife spoken as waf (Fromkin et al., 2011). Other
1. The two major independent constructs compared by the authors were onset-rime and phoneme awareness. The dependent constructs were early reading ability and general academic ability. The independent constructs were operationalised using twelve trials of a segmenting and a blending task; which was given at age five. Half of the trials involved blending phonemes and the other half involved blending onset-rime and rhymes; scores for both the tests were combined.
Reading is an acquired skill, developed through explicit teaching and founded upon a child’s innate ability to hear and process sounds from birth. Beginning at birth exposure to oral language, gestures and the functions of communication (Fellows & Oakley, 2010 p.165) allows exploration of sounds and words and their connection to each other, and introduces cue systems that will later assist in decoding complex text as development of reading ability occurs. Cue systems including linguistic rules of speech, such as grammatical, pragmatic, semantic and syntactic structures (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2004, p. 324), provide readers with strategies and knowledge for comprehension and phonological awareness (Gascoigne, 2005, p. 1). Rich language exchanges
When talking about the language development of children it consists of four domains, which are the phonological development grammatical development, lexical development and pragmatic development. Phonological development focuses on the development of speech sounds which deals with the pronunciation of the words. At my field site, which is located at Brooklyn College, I noticed two students’ phonological development. I was observing the ones class. One of the students, Nathanial was given the object ball and the teacher kept repeating herself and said, “Ball, this is a ball. Ball.” N tries to repeat after her and trying to tell he me, he lends against me and said, “ba”. Nathanial could only pronounce the beginning of the word. Then
This article is about the development of phonological awareness. Phonological awareness is one of the three phonological processing abilities; the other two are phonological memory and phonological access to lexical storage. Phonological processing is the processing of the sounds of one’s native language. Phonological awareness is the degree of sensitivity to the sound structure of oral language; it is a critical component for learning to read alphabetic languages such as French. Phonological memory is when you code information in a sound based representational system for temporary storage; phonological access to lexical storage is the efficiency of retrieving phonological codes from memory. One of the causes of dyslexia is difficulty with
Introduction. The acquisition of the plural is dependent on multiple phonological factors that can influence the production and comprehension of the plural marker. In Spanish, the rules of plural marking are simple and considering only non-verb words, the effect of stress preceding the plural marker could determine how the plural is acquired. If the word ends in an unstressed vowel, then simply /-s/ is added onto the word; if the word ends in a stressed vowel (except é) or a consonant, then /-es/ is added; and if the word ends in an unstressed vowel followed by s, then the plural form is the same. Considering these rules, there are other elements that have to agree with the plural tense, one of them being determiners. The articles that
As I began to read the story about the Somalis who are legal immigrants at a meatpacking plant, owned by JBS U.S.A. Inc., and the Latinos at the plant, not all but some are legal immigrants as well. I could not help but to think about Trumps statements regarding immigrants
Reduplicative set seems common when an infant starts learning a language. For most people, the first words that they learned are “mama” and “papa”. It is also a language development process for young children. They use reduplicative sets frequently in order to enable the child to produce polysyllabic utterances without articulating complex structures. Ingram argues that children produce those reduplicative sounds to compensate their inability to produce the whole word. So that when they develop the sophisticated sounding techniques, they would use “mommy” and “daddy” instead of “mama” and “papa”.

As a teacher or parent, I think it is very important during the stage of phonological development to work on the speech sounds that children tend to avoid and become uncomfortable when coming across these sounds. There are many games and activities that can help improve phonological development at home and in the classroom. The activities used would depend on which specific sounds the child is having a difficult time pronouncing and whether that child is struggling with rhyming, syllables, blending, segmenting, onsets and rimes, etc.
