Intonation and Fundamental Frequency of Infants' and Parents' Vocalizations During Social Interaction.
Weaver, Christopher T.; Fry, Charles L.
Infants raised the pitch of their vocalizations when stimulated by vocalizing parents. Nonvocal stimulation did not repeat the effect. Intonation contours did not change during different conditions. The pitch of the parents' vocalizations also rose during vocal interaction. Changes in infant pitch were interpreted as a function of imitation. (Author/CS)
