    Scope and Contents

    The Child Phonology Collection consists of open reel tape recordings produced in a study on speech sound production in children. The Child Phonology Project was conducted by Stanford's Department of Linguistics and the Hearing and Speech Sciences division of Stanford University Medical Center. Four-year-old subjects were recorded in a sound-isolated room at the Stanford Speech Research Laboratory pronouncing short utterances in English, Spanish, and Cantonese. These recordings were then analyzed in various ways. Several studies were conducted based on this collected data; the binders in the collection contain transcription sheets, notes, interviews, and release forms for a Voice-Onset-Time (VOT) Study.
