Children will often omit syllables or specific sounds as they attempt to reproduce more complex adult words. Typically, unstressed syllables will be omitted—those occurring at the beginning of words (e.g., "mato" for "tomato") or in the unstressed medial position (e.g., "e'phant" for "elephant"). Consonant clusters will lead to omissions. For example, in English, one common error is to omit the /s/ in /s/ + stop consonant clusters (e.g., "top" for "stop"). Sometimes, final consonant sounds will be omitted (e.g., "go" for "gone").
