This book compiles original studies investigating crosslinguistic child phonological development in typical and atypical settings, that is, protolanguage phonology. The chapters address topics and issues not widely or exhaustively reported in the literature, such as research on under-represented languages and foci of interest, as well as information that has remained little-known to the field. It documents recent developments on typically developing populations, and atypical developmental speech in children with autism, developmental language disorder affecting speech, childhood apraxia of speech, phonological assessment and intervention, phonological awareness in (a)typical contexts affecting literacy, and motor speech analysis in speech sound disorders. The book will be of interest to linguists and academic researchers, as well as postgraduate students who are investigating child language acquisition in monolingual settings.

This book is an excellent resource for readers looking to expand their crosslinguistic knowledge base in phonological acquisition. The studies span the age range from infancy through school years, providing new insights concerning children with typical and atypical development across languages as diverse as Hebrew, Russian and Valley Zapotec.

This skillfully edited collection looks to the past while making major strides in moving the field of child phonology forward. These reports of speech development in a diverse set of languages provide unique historical, theoretical, and clinical perspectives of interest to a wide, international audience.
