:Consonant harmony:

Pronunciation GB: ˈkɒnsənənt, GA: ˈkɑnsənənt

A child phonology process which constrains the co-occurrence of the place of articulation of consonants within a word. A typical pattern is that bilabial and alveolar consonants can co-occur freely, but velar consonants may not co-occur with bilabials or alveolars. So, for example, while the words pat, dab and cook may be pronounced with adult-like consonants by a child, the same child may pronounce goat as dəʊt and cap as pæp.
