Journal Article Published About Typically Developing Children’s Speech Acquisition in HCMC

In 2017 The Trinh Foundation supported Mrs Xuan Thi Thanh Le to work with Professor Sharynne McLeod and Dr Ben Phạm to study Southern Vietnamese children’s speech acquisition.
The research involved testing 132 children aged 3;0–5;11 living in Ho Chi Minh City. The children’s consonants, semivowels, vowels, and tones were assessed using the Vietnamese Speech Assessment (VSA) and the Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS). The journal article written to document this research has just been published in the journal Speech, Language and Hearing. Here is the reference and link:

• Le, X. T. T., McLeod, S. & Phạm, B. (2021, in press). Consonant accuracy and intelligibility of Southern Vietnamese children. Speech, Language and Hearing.

The article complements the following articles that have been published about Vietnamese children’s speech acquisition:
