phonemes, frequency of consonant phonemes, consonant phoneme
This study seeks to identify the most frequently occurring phonemes in Filipino conversations through a descriptive quantitative research by phonetically transcribing the conversations within nine (9) episodes of Filipino television shows. This would benefit in the development of preliminary data for the relative frequency of phonemes of Filipino speech, which would impact on increasing intelligibility and in phoneme target selection during speech therapy. The Filipino phonemes which occurred most frequently are /n/, /k/, /m/ while the most frequent borrowed phonemes are /f/, /dݤ/ and /v/. Based on their frequency in speech, it can be said that targeting the most frequently appearing phonemes would have the most impact on the improvement of speech intelligibility.
