Material type: materialTypeLabelArticleDescription: 248-257.Subject(s): speech sound development; approximants; normative study; Croatian eng In: PROCEEDINGS SPEECH AND LANGUAGE 2013, 4th International Conference on Fundamental and Applied Aspects of Speech and Language str. 248-257 Mirjana Sovilj, Miško Subotić (ur.).Summary: This paper reports a study on the speech sound development of Croatian children aged 3 ; 0-7 ; 0. Speech samples of 600 children (300M and 300F) were analyzed to obtain normative data for the acquisition of approximants. Liquids and trill are considered to be the last sounds appearing in children's phonologies and according to the published Croatian norms, these sounds should be developed by the age of 4 ; 0 - /l/ or 4 ; 6 - /lj/ and /r/. However, the results from this study show that the age of acquisition is higher and it is 4 ; 6 years for /l/, 5 ; 6 for /lj/ and 6 ; 0 for /r/. The paper discusses the dynamics of the development of liquids and the trill in Croatian considering phonological processes (i.e. error patterns or substitutions) and developmental distortions, the age of their suppression and the proportion of their occurrence in the speech of typically developing children. The results show no gender differences in the phonological development within the same age group. Vrsta sudjelovanja: Predavanje
