Journal of Communication Disorders, v31 n4 p315-35 Jul-Aug 1998
This study evaluated an experimental articulation testing instrument for differentiating child speakers (N=21, ages 5:0 to 6:6) of African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) with atypical and typical phonologies. Significant group differences were observed, suggesting that the measure can differentiate typical and atypical development in this population. Observed error patterns are described. (Author/DB)
