Abstract Three basic questions oflunguistic theory are addressed as they relate to phonological disorders in children. Experimental clinical research that has appealed to these linguistic concerns is discussed in understanding how children learn phonetic distinctions, how they learn phonemic distictions, and how they organize phonological information in their mental lexicon. From this research, linguistic principles arise for clinical application in structuring intervention programs and in predicting phonological change.

Trois questions fondamentales à la théorie linguistique sont présentées par rapport à leur relation avec les troubles phonologiques chez les enfants. La recherche expérimentale à l'origine de ces débats linguistiques est discutée afin de mieux compredre comment les enfants apprennent les distinctions phonétiques, les distinctions phonémiques et comment ils organisent l'information phonologique dans leur lexique mental. Sur la base de cette recherche, des principes linguistique ont évolué pour donner lieu à des applications cliniques visant à structurer les programmes d'intervention et à prédire le progrés phonologique.
