Description:

This volume brings together a collection of empirical studies on
phonological acquisition and disorder of monolingual children speaking
different languages (English, German, Putonghua, Cantonese, Maltese,
Telugu, Colloquial Egyptian Arabic and Turkish) and bilingual children
speaking different language pairs (Spanish-English, Cantonese-English,
Mirpuri/Punjabi/Urdu-English, Welsh-English, Arabic-English and
Putonghua-Cantonese). The research findings provide much-needed baseline
information for clinical assessment and diagnosis as well as valuable
evidence concerning theories of language acquisition and the role of the
ambient language.
