    Speech sound development
  4. is the tendency to hear speech sounds 'merely' as members of a phonemic category - the category of 'z' sounds, or the category of 'p' sounds, etc
    Categorical perception
  5. ability to identify same sound with different speakers and in changing environments
    Perceptual constancy
  6. Knowing the differences between phonemes that signal word meaning differences.

    Association of minimal pairs to signal word meaning differences found to occur at different times
    Perception of phonemic contrasts
  7. Prelinguistic stages:
    • Reflexive crying 0-2 months

    Reflexive crying
  9. Sounds of discomfort

    Associated with feeding
    Vegetative sounds
  10. Sounds of comfort
    Cooing and laughter
  11. manipulating pitch (to produce "squeals" and "growls"), loudness (producing "yells"), and also manipulating tract closures to produce friction noises, nasal murmurs, "raspberries" and "snorts"
    Vocal Play
  12. similar strings of sounds (same consonant, different vowel
    Reduplicated babbling
  13. (nonreduplicated babbling) - consonants and vowels
    Variegated Babbling
  14. extended sounds that are chopped up rhythmically by oral articulations into syllable-like sequences, opening and closing their jaws, lips and tongue. The range of sounds produced are heard as stop-like and glide-like. Fricatives, affricates and liquids are more rarely heard, and clusters are even rarer. Vowels tend to be low and open, at least in the beginning

    Prosody begins to appear
  15. strings of babbled utterances
  16. elements that occur across segments that are used to influence what we say
    –is the rhythm, stress, and intonation
    –may reflect various features of the speaker or the utterance: the emotional state of the speaker; the form of the utterance (statement, question, or command); the presence of irony or sarcasm; emphasis, contrast, and focus; or other elements of language that may not be encoded by grammar or choice of vocabulary (this is through adulthood)
    Prosodic features
  17. occurs around the end of the first year beginning with the first meaningful word.
    linguistic phase
  18. vocalizations used consistently by child in a certain context without an recognizable adult model

    invented words
    Proto-words/vocables/quasi-words/phonetically consistent forms
  19. Contrastive words (not phonemes) are acquired. In other words, children are not just learning sounds, which are then used to make up words, but rather, they seem to learn word units that happen to contain particular sets of sounds.
    Presystemic phase
  20. acquiring word forms in unanalyzed units as whole words
    Item learning stage
  21. acquiring the phonological principals of the system

    Regressive Assimilation
  38. one syllable within the 2 word phrase becomes more prominent or stressed
    Contrastive stress
  39. without the pause between 2 words and with one intonational contour) where the pause between words, one is louder and conveys meaning

  43. awareness of the sound structure of phonological structure of a spoken word in contrast to written words
    phonological awareness
  44. is different than phonological awareness—it refers only to the phoneme level      and requires the understanding that words are made up of individual sounds
    Phonemic Awareness
  45. the use of sounds of language to process verbal information in oral or written form that requires working and long-term memory
    Phonological Processing
  46. involves memory skills where they must determine which sound in stored memory is to be used with a new word.

  58. from their first language to English
    Interference or transfer
  59. refers to the study of the different allomorphs of the morpheme and the rules governing their use.
  60. This awareness involves recognition of the onset of the syllable and the rime, or the rest of the syllable, which includes the syllable peak and coda.
    Onset-Rime Awareness
  61. Why test language?
    It affects grammatical markers

    Avoidance to talk because of articulation problems

    Second language acquisition
  62. What are the pros for using articulation tests?
    easy to administer and score

    results provide a quantifiable list of "incorrect" sound productions in different word positions

    provide standardized scores

    scores could be used to document the client's need for, and progress in, therapy
  63. What are the cons for using an articulation tests?
    examines sound articulation in selected isolated words.

    not enough information about the phonological system because articulation tests are measures of speech sound production.

    do not test all sounds in all the contexts

    examines only a small portion of that child's articulatory behavior
  64. What to consider when selecting an Articulation Assessment?
    Appropriateness for age or developmental level

    Ability to provide standardized score          

    Type of Analysis of the sound errors          -do they assess articulation or phonology?         

    Includes adequate sample of the sound or sounds relevant to each person
  65. What are the Assessment Procedures to Supplement Articulation Tests?
    Transcribe the full word when there is an error

    Supplement the articulation test with additional utterances that address the noted problems of the client: make sure that you test the target sounds in various positions and contexts.

    Always sample and record continuous speech

    Determine the stimulability of the error sounds
  66. What are the 3 error scoring system?
    Two way scoring (it is either right or wrong) CON: Doesn’t provide information on the kind of aberrant articulation happens. It doesn’t tell you what the child does.

    Five-way scoring (SODA) –Con: no examples of what is considered the norm; the category may include the presence not the absence of a sound; substitution and distortion are vague terms. A substitution to you might be a distortion to another SLP

    Phonetic transcription (TIME CONSUMING)
  67. What do we examine in a oral peripheral evaluation?
    Examine the head and facial structure

    Size, shape of lower portion of the skull including the jaw

    The hard and soft palates

    Oral and pharyngeal cavity structures

    The tongue (structure)

    Examine breathing: look for “normal” breathing habits
  68. the clinical evaluation of a client's disorder, can be divided into two phases: appraisal and diagnosis
  69. the collection of data
  70. represents the end result of studying and interpreting the data
  71. consists of activities or tests that identify individuals who merit further evaluation.
  72. is a series of activities and tests that allows a more detailed and complete collection of data.
    comprehensive evaluation
  73. refers to testing the client's ability to produce a misarticulated sound in an appropriate manner when "stimulated" by the clinician to do so.
    Stimulability testing
  74. repeating with normal pronounciation what the client has just said for easier identification later.
  75. have been often been used to test the speed of movement of the articulators. /pataka/
    Diadochokinetic rates
  76. is the time span during childhood in which conventional words begin to appear as a means of communication
    emerging phonology
  77. the ability to identify and distinguish between different sounds
    Perceptual testing or auditory discrimination
  78. is the ability to store and recall information which was given verbally.
    Auditory memory
  79. is the ability to remember or reconstruct the order of items in a list or the order of sounds in a word or syllable.
    Auditory sequencing
  80. is the process of putting together phonemes to form words.
