Interacting Processes in the Child's Acquisition of Stop-Liquid Clusters. Papers and Reports on Child Language Development, No. 7.
Children's productions of words with stop-liquid clusters in the adult model are compared across six languages. Although the children learning these languages need not follow the same course of learning, processes operative on adult clusters are shown to be very similar. The children's productions all progressed through the same three major stages, and their alternative productions seemed to be controlled by similar temporal and phonological factors. (Author)
