Consonant Cluster Development in Two-Year-Olds: General Trends and Individual Difference
- Effect of Temporal Variation on Phoneme Identification Skills in 2-3 Year old Typically Developing Children. Catherine, S. Powlin Arockia; Savithri, S. R. // Journal of the All India Institute of Speech & Hearing;2009, Vol. 28, p31
The present study investigated the ability of 2 to 3 year old Kannada speaking children to identify synthetic phonemes varying in voice onset time (VOT). Four picturable (two minimal pair) words with stop consonants contrasting in voicing (labial: /b/ and /p/, velar: /g/ and /k/) in word-initial...
- Assessing consonant cluster production under imitative and more spontaneous conditions. Powell, Thomas W. // Perceptual & Motor Skills;Jun97 Part 2, Vol. 84 Issue 3, p1134
Presents a study in which six children's production of word-initial consonant clusters was assessed before and after using imitative or spontaneous sampling conditions. Documentation of gains and accuracy under both sampling conditions; Similar findings yielded from the two procedures.
- The relation between speech perception and phonemic awareness: Evidence from Low-SES children and... Nittrouer, Susan // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Oct96, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p1059
Examines the relation between speech perception and phonemic awareness. Study of children with low socioeconomic backgrounds, with histories of otitis media and with both conditions; Language development.
- The role of L1 knowledge on L2 speech perception: investigating how native speakers and Brazilian learners categorize different VOT patterns in English. Schwartzhaupt, Bruno; Alves, Ubiratã Kickhöfel; da Luz Fontes, Ana Beatriz Arêas // Revista de Estudos da Linguagem;jul-dez2015, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p311
The present study aimed to investigate how different Voice Onset Time (VOT) patterns are categorized by native speakers of American English and Brazilian Learners of English. American English and Brazilian Portuguese diverge as to the voicing patterns of plosive consonants, for the VOT cue plays...
- Electropalatographic Parameter Analysis of Single Consonant of Xiahe Tibetan Dialects. Li Yonghong; Dawa Pengcuo; Wu Han // Applied Mechanics & Materials;2014, Vol. 713-715, p1689
Targeting at Xiahe Tibetan dialects and with 16 single consonants followed by vowel /a/ as the recording texts, the article analyzes the electropalatographic parameters such as AC, PC, VC, Ant, Pos, CA, CP, CC. The findings are as follows: 1. Plosives show more tongue-palate contact in front...
- Auditory speech perception capacity of child implant users expressed as equivalent hearing loss. Boothroyd, Arthur; Eran, Orna // Volta Review;Nov94, Vol. 96 Issue 5, p151
Tests the auditory speech capacity of children using the Nucleus multichannel cochlear implant through an imitative speech pattern contrast perception (IMSPAC). Goals of the study; Operation mechanics of the IMSPAC; Importance of etiology as variable in hearing impaired children; Similarity of...
- PERCEPTION OF STOP CONSONANTS WITH CONFLICTING TRANSITIONAL CUES: A CROSS-LINGUISTIC STUDY. Fujimura, O.; Macchi, M.J.; Streeter, L.A. // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec78, Vol. 21 Issue 4, p337
Presents a cross-linguistic study of the perception of stop consonants with conflicting transitional cues. Difference in the linguistic function of vowel consonant transitions; Link between consonant identification and speech production factors; Description of phonology.
- An Attempt to Improve Bilateral Cochlear Implants by Increasing the Distance between Electrodes and Providing Complementary Information to the Two Ears. Tyler, Richard S.; Witt, Shelley A.; Dunn, Camille C.; Parkinson, Aaron J.; Wilson, Blake S.; Perreau, Ann // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Jan2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p52
Objectives: The purpose of this investigation was to determine if adult bilateral cochlear implant recipients could benefit from using a speech processing strategy in which the input spectrum was interleaved among electrodes across the two implants. Design: Two separate experiments were...
- Discrimination of Multiple Coronal Stop Contrasts in Wubuy (Australia): A Natural Referent Consonant Account. Bundgaard-Nielsen, Rikke L.; Baker, Brett J.; Kroos, Christian H.; Harvey, Mark; Best, Catherine T. // PLoS ONE;12/3/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 12, p1
Native speech perception is generally assumed to be highly efficient and accurate. Very little research has, however, directly examined the limitations of native perception, especially for contrasts that are only minimally differentiated acoustically and articulatorily. Here, we demonstrate that...
