Abstract: Canadian speech-language pathologists (SLPs) need to assess Spanish-speaking children’s phonology. Multisyllabic words were studied in 59 Granada Spanish-speaking preschoolers with typical (TD) and protracted phonological development (PPD). Mismatches in number of syllables, stress pattern and word structure vary by age, group and word length. The data may serve as a guide to evaluation of multisyllabic words in Spanish-speaking children.
