NDP3® Assessment HCE transcription

Australian Speech Pathologists are increasingly using the Harrington, Cox and Evans (HCE) (1997) transcription system in preference to the Mitchell (1946) transcription system, for describing Australian English. We are therefore pleased to provide a phonemic transcription of the NDP3 Assessment single vowels, words, phrases and sentences for a typical Australian adult speaker, using the HCE system. The document is a 5-page PDF.


We are very grateful to Felicity Laurence, Certified Practising Speech Pathologist from Tasmania, and to Professor Felicity Cox, Department of Linguistics, Macquarie University, New South Wales, for their help in this matter.
