This paper discusses some preliminary findings from a 'pilot' study of the acquisition of phonology by normal Greek children in a monolingual environment in Athens, Greece, and draws on data elicited by the authors during the summer of 1971 from children of from 24 months to 9 years of age. The five topics treated concern (1) the problem of observational adequacy in the transcription of child language, (2) the developmental disruption of the syntactic function of suprasegmentals, (3) the 'primacy' of the labial stop, (4) child speech-production and the migration of Features, segments, and syllables, and (5) the acquisition of external sandhi and the reinterpretation of the Greek stops.
