Summary/Abstract: The authoress’s main objective was to observe the relationship between the structure of frenulum in 6‑year‑olds and the children’s pronunciation based on the carried‑out research. The article discusses the influence of shortened lingual frenulum on the examined children’s pronunciation, depending on the degree of shortening. What follows, the pronunciation of all the basic variants of Polish language phonemes as well as of consonant groups has been evaluated; moreover, the motility of speech organs has been studied as well as the phonemic hearing of the examined children. The results of own research have been presented against the background of various researchers’ views on the influence of ankyloglossia on pronunciation.
