The phonological processes exhibited by 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children were evaluated using Phonological Process Analysis. Fifty children, 10 each in 5 age groupings, with no histories of speech-language delay or disorder served as subjects. It was found that the examined processes decreased as a function of age, although several processes were rarely used by any age group and no differences related to sex were apparent. The development patterns for specific processes are discussed.
