Abstract Four and five year old children who inconsistently misarticulated /s/, the "r" family (/r/, /?/, /?/. Or both were asked 'what?') contigent upon misarticulation of a target sound. Subjects' reposnses were sorted into catergories including those in which the word containing the target sound was repeated and reposnses in which the target sound was used but notn in the word questioned. Information was obtained about how frequently the children articulated the target sound correctly in words produced immediately after the questions and in other words.

À des enfants agés de quatre ou cing ans qui mesarticulaient de facon intermittente les sons /s/ ou le groupe "r" (/r/, /?/, et /?/) ou les deux, on demandé "Quoi?" suivant chaque mésarticulation du son visé. Les résponses des sujets ont été assorties en catérgories, y inclus celles où le son visé avait été employédans un mot qu'on n'avait pas questionné. Des reseignements ont été obtenus sur la fréquence de l'articulation correcte du son visé dans les mots prononcés immediatement aprés les questions et dans d'autres mots.
