Provides a rationale for extensions to the Percentage of Consonants Correct metric computed from a 5-10 minute conversational speech sample. Need for the measurement of speech production that are biolinguistically appropriate; Provision of reliability and standard error of measurement estimates in a set of speech metrics; Rationale in selecting the metrics.
