The measure of Percentage of Consonants Correct (PCC) was originally developed by Shriberg and Kwiatkowski (1982) and based

on conversational speech. Single-word material may be used, provided that results are not to be related to severity of involvement (Shriberg et al., 1997).

Calculating the PCC in (restricted) single word samples has been used to assess articulation skills in children born with cleft palate

(e.g. Scherer et al., 2008; Klintö et al., 2014).

Restricted word list information is available at https://clispi.com/clispi.php?id=265&mid=275&p=269&l=2  

** Lohmander et al., 2009; 2017 ***McLeod et al., 2012.
