This study attempted to identify diagnostic markers for suspected developmental apraxia of speech (SD-DAS) in 30 children with either SD-DAS or speech delay using analytic procedures from metrical phonology. Findings indicated that, although lexical metrical patterns did not differentiate the groups, syllable omissions persisted until much later ages in the SD-DAS subjects. (Author/DB)
