You Are here : Field 2

Simulated Clinical Data

The speech data in this Field takes the form of single word responses to a picture naming task, originally elicited from children presenting with developmental speech sound disorders but reproduced here by adult speakers. The exercises will give you practise in transcribing atypical speech patterns and so further develop your ability to listen objectively and select appropriate phonetic symbols. Because the data has been produced under controlled conditions, it is 'easier' to transcribe than spontaneous speech and this Field should therefore be viewed as a 'bridge' between the ear training drills in Field 1 and the real clinical data in Field 3.
