Welcome to SLTD04 Clinical Linguistics and Phonetics!
In this module you will build on the knowledge and skills you acquired last year in SLTC02 Phonetics and Phonology and SLTC03 Introduction to Linguistics. You will have the opportunity to refine your phonetic transcription and grammatical analysis skills and apply these to both typical and atypical speech and language data. You will also learn new analysis methods to assist you in your interpretation of clinical speech data and develop your understanding of how transcription and analysis inform clinical management decisions. The ability to describe speech and language samples systematically and objectively is a core clinical skill and as such will complement and support your learning on other modules throughout the program.
