    The effects of phonotactic constraints (i.e., the status of a sound as correctly or incorrectly articulated) and phonotactic probability (i.e., the likelihood of a sound sequence) on lexical acquisition have been investigated independently. This study investigated the interactive influence of...

    During phonological acquisition phonological processes may occur which are not to be found in adult language. These simplifications are quite normal within a certain period of time. But if the child does not overcome these processes phonological mistakes may become manifest as phonological...
