What is Initial Consonant Deletion? This episode of the Speech and Language Kids Podcast is a short Speech Spotlight on Initial Consonant Deletion (ICD). ICD is when a child consistently leaves off consonants from the beginning of words. For example, stick becomes ick and tree becomes ee. While young children often leave consonants of For instance, it is common for young Finnish children to have initial consonant deletions, an atypical phonological process in English-speech acquisition (Vihman & Velleman, 2000). Ambient language effects on speech sound acquisition are also observed in bilingual children

Clinicians learned to explain to parents why each is important to. It appears that a major phonological simplification process common to English speakers, final consonant deletion, or replacement, can only occur in the /n/ or /η/ final consonants of Mandarin, but that initial consonant deletion or replacement may be a more frequent pattern Initial consonant deletion in bilingual Spanish-English-speaking children with speech sound disorders Leah Fabiano-Smith and Suzanne Lea Cuzner (2019) References The Handbook of Child Language 10.1111/b.9780631203124.1996.ref

Observations of processes seen in normal development (e.g., assimilation, fronting, cluster simplification, stopping) are noted, along with those that are nondevelopmental (e.g., use of favorite sound, glottal replacement, initial consonant deletion, idiosyncratic cluster reduction) Final consonant deletion omitting a singleton consonant at the end of a word cat → /kæ/ 3 Fronting of initial velar singles substituting a front sound for a back sound can → /tæn/ 4 Deaffrication replacing an affricate with a continuant or stop chip → /sɪp/ 4 Cluster reductio Widespread Deletion of Initial Consonants By 2 a child should use at least 3 to 4 different consonant sounds at the beginnings of words. By 3 a child should have a large repertoire of initial consonants. Substitution of Back Consonants /k/ and /g/ or /h/ for a variety of Consonants For *some words* (about 10 give or take) he deletes the initial consonant if he doesn't yet have it in his inventory.

He's quite intelligible for his age with the exception of the few words where he leaves off the initial. Purpose The variable deletion of word-final consonants is a well-known feature of African American English (AAE).

For example, the first process to be targeted in therapy may be initial consonant deletion, which might last for 6 weeks.

For example, final consonant deletion (leaving off ending consonant sounds in words) typically disappears between 2 1/2 to 3 years of age.

What is Vowelization? Vocalization (voc), also called Vowelization, is a phonological process which typically starts to assimilate around the age of 3.5 years, and sometimes lasts up to the age of 5-7 years. This process is the latest to be eliminated from a child's speech in typical development, and because of this, as well as the involvement of the pesky /r/ sound (very complex in itself. (2001). As the age advanced from 3 -4 years, Fronting, cluster reduction, initial consonant deletion and final consonant deletion persisted even at the age of 4 years because the clusters are acquired at a later age and also the acquisition of all phonemes is not complete by 4 years of age
