The tag wiki for speech currently is:
What is speech?
Speech is the vocalized form of human communication. The subject of speech includes many subskills, such as vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, enunciation.
What questions should have this tag?
- Questions about teaching your child to speak.
- Questions about speech disabilities.
- Questions about improving any area of speech skills.
- General questions about speech disabilities.
Looking at the talking questions, most of them seem to me to fall squarely under "questions about teaching your child to speak". However, the focus of some are more precisely under the category of milestones.
We can address this by expanding the tag wiki for speech to include "Questions about speech and communication milestones" to the "What questions should have this tag?" section.
There is one talking question that seem more focused on the behavior of talking, rather than learning/disabilities/improving skills: How to deal with incessant talking?. While it is a good question, I don't see the value of tagging it with either speech or talking. The question is about the behavior, and the fact that the behavior involves speech is secondary to the question.
I'd suggest we simply remove talking from that question.
Once we update the speech wiki, and remove talking from that question, we should make talking a synonym for speech.
