- The articulatory basis of babbling. Davis, Barbara L.; MacNeilage, Peter F. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Dec95, Vol. 38 Issue 6, p1199
Presents a study which provides a strong confirmation of the contention that most of the articulatory variation in babbling is frame-related. Findings which suggest that the tongue's position may not change during the utterance; Results of the study as answers to the question of potential...
- Phonological Pattern Frequency and Speech Production in Adults and Children. Munson, Benjamin // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2001, Vol. 44 Issue 4, p778
Recent studies have suggested that both adults and children are sensitive to information about phonological pattern frequency; however, the influence of phonological pattern frequency on speech production has not been studied extensively. The current study examined the effect of phonological...
