What is Whole Word Analysis?

Looks at the Phonological Mean Length of Utterance (pMLU) - both possible and actual to gain a Proximity score

1 point for each consonant & vowel

1 additional point for each correct consonant

13

How do you calculate the Proximity Score?

Speaker's PMLU divided by the Target PMLU (Possible PLMU)
