“Memorizing and regurgitating are not science. Real science is a constant investigation of the unknown.”
― Abhijit Naskar
There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period.”
― Michael Crichton
"Speech Sound Monsters" are conceptual characters designed to visually represent speech sounds or phonemes, making them more tangible and understandable for children. These characters serve as child-friendly phonetic symbols or speech sound pictographs, adapting to the various ways phonemes can be represented in the English language, which has an opaque orthography.
