In speech-language pathology we make a clear distinction between a person’s speech versus language skills (click here for more information on language). Speech refers to the physical-acoustic properties of spoken communication including speech clarity that comes from the accuracy of produced speech sounds, substitutions, prosody or intonation, and the rate and fluency of speaking.
