language a structured, shared, rule-governed, symbolic system for communicating. Five components: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics
Phonology the use of sounds to make meaningful syllables and words. Encompasses the rules and sequencing of individual speech sounds (called phonemes) and how they are produced, depending on their placement in a syllable or word
morphology the system that governs the structure of words.
morpheme the smallest meaningful unit of speech
syntax provides rules for putting together a series of words to form sentences
semantics refers to the meaning of what is expressed
pragmatics refers to the use of communication in contexts
Social interaction theories emphasize that communication skills are learned through social interactions

distortions modifications of the production of a phoneme in a word (ex. lisp)
apraxia a motor speech disorder that affects the way in which a student plans to produce speech
pitch determined by the rate of vibration in the vocal folds
duration the length of time any speech sound requires
intensity loudness or softness - based on the perception of the listener and determined by the air pressure coming from the lungs through the vocal folds.
