Book: Optimality Theory, Phonological Acquisition and Disorders

Chapter: 2 Phonological disorders and the Developmental Phonology Archive

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21482


This chapter describes a protocol that addresses limitations associated with the study of phonological development by shifting the focus from typically developing toddlers to preschoolers with functional phonological disorders. This population affords an opportunity for the use of sophisticated elicitation materials, procedures, and data analyses, as employed on the Learnability Project.
