Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine what speech patterns are present in conversational speech in the Cuban-born, American speaking population. In accordance with this goal, audio-tapes of twenty-five adult Cubans were analyzed for phonetic and general speech behavior deviations. The study was conducted in hopes that the results might lead to a more effective plan of speech therapy.
