|Module is taught during the following terms
This module looks at the process of phonological development in normally developing children and those with delayed and disordered speech, and traces the way in which phonological theory and also non-linguistic theory has been applied to first language data. We consider the kinds of concessions that have to be made to phonological theory to shed light on acquisition. We also consider how theoretical models have been employed in the diagnosis of disordered speech
By the end of the module students should be able analyse simple data sets within different frameworks, to understand the ways in which phonological theories of various sorts have been brought to bear on child data and the way linguistic theory has been modified to accommodate the nature of acquisition.
