Phonetically sorted Greek and Swedish speech therapy libraries

Library of Greek and Swedish phonemes, words and sentences to be used for speech therapy.

The aim of speech therapy is to teach new speech patterns, increase the intelligibility of speech, and establish automaticity and to transfer skills to untrained situations. The OLP word-list (library) was needed to adequately sample the full range of expected expressions and to allow for automatic evaluation support and therapy design for the client groups. When constructing the library two aspects were considered. The material had to be quite large to represent the language as much as possible. On the other hand the spoken material should not be too long especially in the case of clients with speech difficulties. Therefore the use of the same word for different phonemes and for different positions was used in order to reduce the number of words.

The Greek and Swedish libraries were constructed in such a way to fully cover all possible deviations made. This means that the libraries are language-dependent, systematically constructed and based on the phonetics and phonology of the Greek and Swedish language respectively.

Selection criteria for the construction of the Greek and Swedish libraries were that all vowels should occur in mono- and polysyllabic words and that all consonants should occur in all possible positions (initial, medial, final), followed by both rounded and unrounded vowels (if applicable) At least three examples of each condition were included.

Content of the Greek library to be used for speech therapy:
- Isolated speech sounds (26 consonants, 5 vowels)
- CV, CCV and VC, VCC syllables (128)
- 2-syllable words with the target phoneme in initial position (129)
- 3-syllable words with the target phoneme in initial position (128)
- 2-syllable words with the target phoneme in medial position (142)
- 3-syllable words with the target phoneme in medial position (119)
- 2-syllable words with the target phoneme in final position (35)
- 3-syllable words with the target phoneme in final position (35)
- Clusters in initial position (92)
- Phrases (91)
- Sentences (50)

Content of the Swedish library to be used for speech therapy:
- Isolated speech sounds (18 consonants, 22 long and short vowels)
- CV, CCV and VC, VCC syllables (339)
- Rate drills repeating the same consonant (18)
- Rate drills repeating alternating consonant (12)
- Monosyllabic words and clusters in initial and final position (947)
- Polysyllabic words: 2 syllables and 3-4 syllables (247, 257)
- Phrases and short sentences (109)
