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...
- The vowel house: a cognitive approach to vowels for literacy and speech. Reid, Jennifer // Child Language Teaching & Therapy;Jun2003, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p152
Awareness of consonants and vowels is a fundamental literacy skill. In English, there is a highly complex relationship between written and spoken vowels. Children with language impairment may display significant difficulties in acquiring adequate phonological processing skills for vowels, with...

Presents a study in which six children's production of word-initial consonant clusters was assessed before and after using imitative or spontaneous sampling conditions. Documentation of gains and accuracy under both sampling conditions; Similar findings yielded from the two procedures.
- The response to sudden change in vocal tract resistance during stop consonant production. Kim, Jong-Ryoul; Zajac, David J. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug1997, Vol. 40 Issue 4, p848

- Effects of Syllable Affiliation and Consonant Voicing on Temporal Adjustment in a Repetitive Speech-Production Task. de Jong, Kenneth J. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2001, Vol. 44 Issue 4, p826
This paper presents the results of an acoustic speech-production experiment in which speakers repeated simple syllabic forms varying in consonantal voicing in time to a metronome that controlled repetition rate. Speakers exhibited very different patterns of tempo control for syllables with...
