252 12 Coda Acquisition in Childhood Apraxia of Speech in Hebrew Gila Tubul-Lavy Introduction Coda acquisition among Hebrew-speaking children with typical phonological development (TD) occurs between 2;6-4;0 years (Ben- David, 2015). Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a neurological childhood speech sound disorder resulting in poor speech intelligibility (ASHA, 2007). Currently, a lack of consensus exists regarding the specific phonological and motoric characteristics of this population, making early diagnosis a complex task. This chapter aims to

children are very closely attuned to the frequency patterns of prosodic structure in the input language and are aware of their specific distributions across the lexicon.

marked. In order for codas to emerge, a certain parameter has to be set, i.e., the branching of the rhyme (Fikkert 1994), or markedness constraints have to be demoted, i.e., the coda constraint becomes outranked by faithfulness (Gnanadesikan 1995, Smolensky 1996). In spite of this general agreement on universal principles, coda acquisition is one of the most variegated phenomena, characterized by an enormous amount of differing appearances and individual variation. Accordingly, some German children produce codas from the very beginning (Grijzenhout and Joppen 1999

. The follow- ing scale is adopted from Hogg and McCully (1987). Sonority sequencing principle has been shown to be influential in several aspects of developmental patterns in first and second language phonologies including onset and coda acquisitions (Yavaş, 2003). The appeal to sonority is not only to separate what is natural (expected) from unnatural (unexpected), but also to distinguish the relative degree of naturalness. The greater the sonority distance is between the members of a cluster, the more natural the sequence is. With respect to two-member codas, a

phonological therapy. Conclusion This volume attempted to set up a paradigm for identifying develop- mental universals and language-specific features in phonological 448 Part 4: Coda acquisition. By systematically comparing the data from normally and aty- pically developing multilingual children including monolingual and bilingual children, it derived a set of similarities in the phonological acquisition of children with various language backgrounds that will, in turn, become candidates for developmental universals. It is primarily for this purpose of cross

affects order of acquisition by place of articulation, and that front consonants are easier to acquire than back consonants. Grammatical conditioning affects coda acquisition as well. In research on Mandarin Chinese speakers learning L2 Swedish, Abrahamsson (2001) found that deletion of /r/ in codas was connected to grammatical category.

Abrahamsson found more /r/ deletion in these suffixes than in words where /r/ was part of the mor

single position both at the onset and at the rhyme. This very simple structure (represented in Figure 2a for a syllable like Thee) is soon followed by syllables with branching rhymes, once this one default is substituted by fixing its value to vowel+coda. Onset can be fixed to branching, too, and so can coda be branching as well, as in krank [kʀaŋk] (repre- sented in Figure 2b) with branching onset, branching rhyme and branching coda.
