Fronting is a phonological error when velar or palatal sounds (/k, g/, ‘sh,’ ‘ng’) are substituted for alveolar sounds (/t, d, s, n/). For example, “tat” is substituted for “cat. ”

Backing is a phonological error when alveolar sounds are substituted for velar or palatal sounds. For example, “gog” for “dog”.

Be sure to look at the preview to see what’s included!
