Children acquire speech sounds gradually, but the primary tool used to assess
speech development, phonetic transcription, is by definition categorical. This
presentation is part of a larger project, one of the goals of which is to develop novel
perceptual methods for assessing children's speech production that capture
continuity in speech-sound development.
