Abstract

As the sources of evidence for explaining the speech production process by human beings, slips of the tongue (SOT) are unintentional errors that may occur in children speech. In this study, the writer aims at finding the types of SOT, the frequency SOT, and the involved linguistic units and error mechanisms in SOT in 24 children’s speech aged 4-9 years old in informal conversation with the family members using Indonesian. All self-repairs done by the children are also identified. Each child’s speech was recorded within 5-10 minutes by using audio-visual recordings. The results show that 86 SOT occured and were categorized into 6 types out of 11 types of SOT using Harley’s types (2001) with the word substitution as the most frequent type of SOT produced by the children (44.2 %). Some children who realized their slips made self-repairs. To conclude, the word substitution type dominantly happens in content word or open-class word and involves the non-contextually determined error mechanism and phonologically and semantically related words. The involved linguistic unit is mostly the individual segment becoming an evidence that it is the discrete unit at some stage of the speech production process.
