Restricted wordlists in different languages

Thus, while the aim is to eliminate the language impact as much as possible when comparing speech outcome after cleft palate treatment, it may not be totally met. Consonant phonemes may not be phonetically identical (which is the reason for narrow phonetic transcription of the target consonants in the restricted word lists) or all selected vulnerable phonemes may not be available in all languages. Consequently, compromises must be made when word lists are developed. For example, some languages do not comprise voiced plosives. If so, an extra set words with the voiceless plosives should be included (see f ex Finnish).
