The main stages of development of the pronunciation side of speech in a child

The first sounds of the child are screams, which are an unconditionally reflex reaction to the action of strong stimuli (external and internal), usually of a negative nature (cold, pain, hunger, etc.). These cries the child begins to publish immediately after birth into the world, and they serve as the basis for the subsequent development of sound-producing speech. Already in the first cries of the baby, one can distinguish the similarity of some vowels and consonants such as aa, wa, nee, etc.

By the beginning of the third month, the child begins to babble, the early stage of which, in contrast to the cry, is a reaction to positive stimuli. Most often, the child babbles after eating. In babble you can distinguish quite a variety of sound systems: yeah, ubu, ekhe, etc. This early stage of babble is independent of the surrounding speech environment. Children of different nations in the first months babble alike; babble deaf from babble.

The basis of babble is congenital motor coordination associated with the processes of sucking and swallowing. During babbling, a child establishes a connection between kinesthetic irritations from the movements of speech organs and corresponding auditory irritations. There is a tendency to self-imitation. The sound composition of babble is gradually enriched. Numerous consonants are found in babble, mainly two-lip consonants, such as n, b, m, anterolinguistic type t, d, n and posterolinguistic type k, d, x.

Imitation of the speech of others soon joins self-imitation. The leading role in the subsequent development of the pronunciation skills of the child begins to play hearing, with which the child perceives the speech of others and controls their pronunciation.

Deaf from the birth of children, neither self-imitation, nor imitation of the speech of others develops. The early babble that appeared in them, without receiving reinforcement from the auditory perception, gradually freezes.

At the end of the first year of life, the child appears meaningful sound combinations.
On the basis of imitation and as a result of the active influence of others, a connection is established between objects and phenomena of the external world and the sound of the words denoting them, as well as the kinesthetic sensations that arise when pronouncing these words.

Along with babbling words such as mu-u (cow), but-no (horse), meow (cat), bang (fell), the child begins to utter quite correctly such phonetically uncomplicated words as a woman, mother, dad, uncle, etc. .P. However, gradually expanding its vocabulary, the child, for a long time (up to 4-5 years), utters very imperfectly the majority of the words he has learned. The child has not yet uttered many sounds or uttered them incorrectly. Different sounds are absorbed by children at different times. Vowels generally appear in speech earlier than consonants. Of consonants, explosives appear in speech earlier than consonants. Of consonants, explosives are assimilated earlier than fricatives, deaf ones - before voiced, soft ones - before solid ones. Later all others appear in speech hissing (w, w, h, u) and vibrants (p and p ').

The speech of young children (2-5 years old) is replete with pronunciation defects. Characteristic defects are: 1) omissions of sounds and syllables (“five” instead of sleeping, “moko” instead of milk); 2) replacing some sounds with others (“uti” together with ears, “tutla” instead of a doll); 3) rearrangement of sounds and syllables (“thalerka” instead of a plate, “la-boko” instead of an apple, yadigi instead of a berry); 4) assimilation (assimilation) of sounds (“mothers” instead of a lock).

It is best for children to play stressed and initial syllables, as they are most easily perceived by ear. Along with the expansion of the vocabulary, the assimilation of grammatical norms and the refinement of auditory perception, the pronunciation is gradually improved. The work of the speech apparatus is becoming more subtle and differentiated. By the age of five to seven, the above-mentioned pronunciation defects in most cases disappear, and the children pronounce all the sounds of speech correctly.

The main stages of development of the pronunciation side of speech in a child

  1. The main stages in the development of auditory function in a child
    The human auditory analyzer begins to function from the moment of its birth. Under the influence of sounds of sufficient volume in newborns, one can observe responses that proceed as unconditioned reflexes and manifest themselves in the form of changes in breathing and pulse, delayed sucking movements, etc. At the end of the first and beginning of the second month of life, conditioned reflexes form on the child
  2. Growth and development of the child. The main stages of the development of the body
    Growth is an increase in the mass and linear dimensions of an organism, as well as its constituent organs, occurring due to an increase in the number and mass of cells, non-cellular formations, as a result of the predominance of anabolism over catabolism processes. Each organism has a genetically predetermined growth potential, but its implementation depends on how much the external environment favors this. On growth
  3. The development of the phonetic-phonemic side of speech in ontogenesis
    The phonetic-phonemic side of speech is an indicator of the general culture of speech, the correspondence of the speaker's speech with pronunciation standards. The phonetic side of speech is understood as the pronunciation of sounds as a result of the coordinated work of all departments of the speech-motor apparatus. The peripheral department of the speech motor analyzer is the speech apparatus, which includes: • breathing apparatus,
  4. The development of the lexical and grammatical aspects of speech in children in ontogenesis
    The lexical and grammatical side of speech means the dictionary and its grammatically correct use. A dictionary is words (the basic units of speech) that designate objects, phenomena, actions and signs of surrounding reality. Distinguish between passive and active dictionary. Under the passive dictionary understand the possibility of understanding words, under the active - their use in speech. Dictionary Development Level
  5. Development of the child’s own active speech
    The timing of the beginning of the intensive growth of the active vocabulary, the appearance of two- and three-word sentences, the appearance of questions addressed to adults, depend primarily on the nature of the relationship between adults and the child, on the characteristics of communication between them. In those cases when others speak little with the child, do not cause him to actively use words, speech may lag behind in its development. Are available
    Obstetrics (French accoucher - help during childbirth) is a field of clinical medicine that studies the physiological and pathological processes that occur in a woman’s body associated with conception, pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, as well as developing methods for obstetric care, prevention and treatment of complications of pregnancy and childbirth diseases of the fetus and newborn.

    The encyclopedic writings of Hippocrates (460–377 BC), Galen (about 130–200 years), Ibn Sipa (980–1037), and other scholars in ancient times generalized empirical medical knowledge, including and nutrition accumulated over many millennia. Hippocrates in his essay "On Diet" indicates the need to study the properties of nutrients used by humans, their effects on

  10. “Crises of disappointment” and the main stages of development of a professional psychologist
    Contrary to ordinary ideas, psychologists treat crises not only with “understanding”, but also with “respect”. The well-known statement of L. S. Vygotsky that “if there were no crises, they should have been invented on purpose, otherwise the development of the personality of a child cannot be explained in any way”, refers not only to age psychology, but also to psychologists of becoming a professional. At the same time, crises
  11. The definition of psychological work and the main stages of its development
    Psychological work is an activity carried out in peacetime and wartime by commanders, officers of educational institutions, psychologists and specially created structures (units). It is aimed at studying, forming and developing the psychological qualities of military personnel, maintaining the mental states necessary for the successful conduct of hostilities,

    Jean Piaget (1896-1980) - Swiss and French psychologist, author of 52 books and 458 scientific articles, the most prominent representative of the Geneva School of Genetic Psychology.
