Abstract

The orthographic representation of the “s” in the Spanish language may have three phonetic variations and be associated with other phonological phenomena that add to its unpredictability when used to evaluate the closest speaking space. These are of clinical interest since each of these variations may represent a more or less pronounced difference from what is observed in the English language and patient population. The present article explains the previously mentioned variations and reviews the suggested Spanish terms for evaluation of the closest speaking space.
