A case of final consonant repetition in the speech of a normal child is presented. It is argued that this production pattern is the result of a convergence of phonological factors, including phonetic constraints and cognitively based rule generation, rather than a pathologic process. Final consonant repetition is discussed relative to natural languages and other cases of rule generation in normal children and relative to earlier cases examining this pattern in terms of models of dysfluency. Additionally, the clinical ramifications of the findings are discussed.
