Young children develop the building blocks for later language.

Alphabetic principle is the idea that letters and letter patterns represent the sounds of spoken language. it differs from oral language and phonemic awareness because it is introducing students to letters and incorporating what they have already learned (sounds). it is showing them that the sounds they have learned have letters and can all be.

This book describes all the known ways in which the sounds of the world's languages differ. Encapsulating the work of two leading figures in the field, it will be a standard work of reference for researchers in phonetics, linguistics and speech science for many years to come.
