Project Description

Recordings for this study were gathered from a picture-naming task (99 different word stimuli, 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 nurseries (Kindergarten) (C1-C17 Rostock region/Northeast Germany) or private practices of SLT in Hamburg (C20, C21 C23-C30, C32), in North Rhine-Westphalia (C18, C22, C31) or Rhineland-Pfalz (C19). All children speak standard German. The goal of this project was to investigate psychometric criteria of the phonology test PLAKSS-II (Fox-Boyer, 2014). Ages range from 2;3 to 9;2. The interviews ranged between 15 and 45 minutes and were recorded on an Olympus WS-650S digital audio recorder or a later version of this model.
