Phonemes are classified as....
- Vowels (and dipthongs)
There are____consonants in English
Consonants are classified by 3 main features:
PLACE is a _____ in the vocal tract
Place involves the....?
(moveable and fixed articulators)
- Tongue, Lips, velum, mandible (moveable)
- Teeth, hard palate, alveolar ridge (fixed)
Bilabial (place descriptors)
Bring the lips together (both lips are involved)
Labiodental (place descriptors)
Lips AND teeth are involved in making sound
Linguadental (place descriptors)
Teeth AND tongue are involved in making sounds
*Lingua-alveolar (place descriptors)
Tongue and point of constriction (alevolar ridge)
Linguapalatal (place descriptors)
Flat part of tongue and hard pallet are involved
*Linguavelar (place descriptors)
BACK of tongue and velum
Glottal (place descriptors)
One phoneme "H"
The way in which the valves of the vocal tract constrict the airway
Stop (plosive) (manner descriptor)
Complete blockage of airstream then a quick release.
Fricative (manner descrip)
- Severe constriction of the articulators through which the air passes
- (air continues)
Affricate (manner descrip)
- phoneme begins like a stop and ends like a fricative
- ex: "ch" asin chair J'" as in juice
Nasal (manner descrip)
- Air flows through nasal cavity because velopharyngeal port is open and also air flows into the mouth
- ex: m, n, ng
Lateral (manner develp)
- Air is released on both sides of the tongue
- aka as a liquid
Rhotic (manner develop)
- Air exits the mouth with the tongue in either a bunched or turned-back position.
- aka as a liquid
Glides (manner develp)
- Produced by gradually changing the shape of the articulators
- A sound "glides" into another.
- ie" wine, yes (w, y)
- A consonant is either voiced or voiceless
- A sounds either uses laryngeal vibration or it doesn't
___% of the consonants are voiced or voiceless
- response occurs in the entire vocal tract
- includes nasals, liquids, and glides
- resonance occurs in a more limited area of vocal tract (oral)
- includes stops, fricatives, affricates
Description for /m/ would be...
voiced, bilabial, nasal
The description for /s/ would be...
voiceless, lingua-alveolar, fricative
PLACE of constriction in the vocal tract
- Front, central, back
- (where the tongue is)
DEGREE of constriction within the vocal tract
- High, mid, low
- (where tongue is)
Degree of lip rounding only pertains to...
high and mid back vowels
- A blend of 2 vowels within the same syllable
- ex: fail, foil
- The MOTOR act of producing a phoneme, requires neuromuscular coordination between the nervous system and the articulators
- (tongue, lips, etc)
- A knowledge of the sounds of the language and the rules that govern their production and combination (more rule based)
- ex: child tried to say cup and says cu
Customary production: (sanders)
point at which 50% of children used a sound correctly in two out of 3 word positions
Upper or outside limit of normalcy: (sanders)
90% of the children used each sound correctly in all 3 word positions
SODA (traditional analysis of disordered phonology/articulation)
replacing one sound with another sound. The substitution usually approximates the sound it replaces
- Sounds omitted from a word
- Usually a words final sound
- Imprecise production of airstream in some way.
- ex: lisps. son...thon
- Inappropiate insertion of a sound within a word
- ex: black.....balack
- 1.Serve to simplify the phonological system
- 2.They are NOT random errors
- 3. The use of processes is considered normal
- ie: cu for cup and pane for plane
Phonological processes have been applied to...
the speech patterns of older children w/delayed phonological development.
- Sound system is usually delayed, immature
- ex: 8 yr old uses 3 yr olds speech
There is a high percent of language impairment in children who have a phonological disorder (60%)
- Children with a history of otitis media are more likely to have a/p disorders
- Deaf speech has a distinct pattern (voicing and vowel errors)
- (motor speech dis)
- Due to neuromuscular impairment (stroke, tumor)
- can affect articulation, respiration, phonation, resonance(velum), swallowing)
- Results: imprecise articulatory movements
Developmental Apraxia of Speech (DAS)
Apraxia is the impairment in PROGRAMMING the speech mechanism to select, plan, organize, and initiate a motor pattern
- DAS is more controversial
- Damage likely to Broca's area
- Etiology is neurological, not from trauma
- Articulation errors due to structural deviations of palate, velum, lip, alveolar ridge
- more difficulty with "pressure" sounds such as stops and fricatives
- voice may be affected
- Nasal sounds are easy for them
- Malocclusions - upper and lower teeth arent aligned properly
- Teeth missing
- Lingual frenum too short - band under tongue
- -Ankyloglossia, tongue tie
- Microglossia(too large) Macroglossia(too small)
A child has an artic/phono disorder if...
- The error sound occurs frequently
- The sound on which an error is produced correctly by chil the same age
- The error sound is NOT found in the phoneme system of that persons dialect
Intellectual capacity (cognition)
Learning, perceiving, understanding, concept processing, appropriate responding
- Audition, tactile experiences, vision
- Perception involves discrimination, retention, retrieval
- Innate capacity to learn language
- (born with it)
Child has nervous system which is capable of allowing nurturing sociocommunicative interaction
