Associations among Pragmatic Functions, Linguistic Stress, and Natural Phonological Processes in Speech-Delayed Children Pragmatic function and level of linguistic stress were studied as they relate to variability in phonological performance. Natural phonological process analysis was performed on the discourse topic and the discourse comment in the conversational speech of five speech-delayed children. Level of linguistic stress for discourse function was coded by trained ... Research Article

Pragmatic function and level of linguistic stress were studied as they relate to variability in phonological performance. Natural phonological process analysis was performed on the discourse topic and the discourse comment in the conversational speech of five speech-delayed children. Level of linguistic stress for discourse function was coded by trained judges. Results indicated that both the type of pragmatic function and the level of linguistic stress were associated with reduction in the occurrence of natural phonological processes.
