Abstract: This study investigated effects of language dominance (balanced, English-dominant, and Spanish-dominant) on Spanish-English bilingual children’s consonant production accuracy in each language from 3.5-6 years. Results indicated that consonant production accuracy increased with age in both languages. Furthermore, both Spanish and English accuracy scores were affected by language dominance.
