Abstract The present study aimed at identifying developmental pattern of phonological processes in 2 to 6:11 years typically developing Tamil speaking children. A total of 150 typically developing Tamil speaking children participated in the present study. They were divided into 5 groups with 30 children in each age group. Nine sentences in Tamil with increasing complexity and the pictures representing the sentences was developed. Each child was seated comfortably and pictures of sentences were randomly presented one after the other as the investigator said the sentence describing the picture. The child was instructed to repeat the sentences after the investigator and the same was audio recorded. The speech samples were transcribed and perceptually analysed by a speech language pathologist. Results revealed the occurrence of about thirty-four phonological processes in children’s speech and the processes were suppressed with increase in age. Among the type of phonological process, substitution processes occurred more frequently across the age groups than other processes. The findings of the study would aid in assessment, diagnosis and intervention of children with speech sound disorder.
