The technique of ultrasound imaging allowed comparing the articulatory foundations of children´s coarticulatory patterns.
Four behavioral tasks assessing various levels of phonological awareness from large to small units and expressive vocabulary were also administered.
In this study, we are interested in the developmental relation that may exist between spoken language and aloud reading.
Both mechanisms require a precise control over speech articulators (e.g.

Last, the effect of both vocabulary and phonological awareness was nonlinear.
Overall, results suggest that vocabulary, phonological awareness and speech motor control tightly interact in the process of developing spoken language fluency and may have a strong impact on children´s coarticulatory organization.
