Project Description

Recordings for this study were gathered from a picture-naming task (99 different word stimuli, PLAKSS-I, Fox, 2002 or PLAKSS-II, Fox-Boyer, 2014) which covers all consonants, vowels and consonant clusters of German phonotactics. It also includes words of different word length and stress pattern. The recordings were performed in practices of SLT in Rostock (C1-3), Hamburg (C12, C13, C15, C17, C23, C23), in North Rhine-Westphalia (C6-11, C14, C16, C18, C19, C24-29) or Rhineland-Pfalz (C4, C5, C20, C21). All children speak standard German. Three children grew up bilingual: C9: Portuguese-German, C26 Rumanian-German and C29 Polish-German The goal of this project was to investigate relationship between intelligibility and type of speech sound disorder / types of phonological processes produced by the children. Ages range from 3;0 to 9;7. The interviews ranged between 15 and 45 minutes and were recorded on different digital audio recorders (mp 3) as owned by the clinicians.
