Psycholinguistic Evidence for a Hierarchy of Syllable Structure. Final Report.
Schane, Sanford A.; Pisoni, David B.
An experiment was conducted to investigate the linguistic concept of a hierarchy of syllable structures. Subjects were asked to identify different types of consonant clusters in initial, medial, and final positions in words. Little psycholinguistic evidence was discovered to support the hierarchical ordering described in the linguistic literature. However, the results of this experiment must be classified as tentative rather than definitive. (Author/FWB)
