Voice Onset Time in Children and Infants: An Annotated Bibliography. Papers and Reports on Child Language Development, No. 14.
The first part of this bibliography contains annotations of articles on the acquisition of voice onset time (VOT) as the marker of a phonological contrast, that is, the studies concern children who are already developing a phonological system. The most common questions are the following: (1) When children begin to produce initial stops, how are they distributed along the continuum of VOT? (2) When do children begin to consistently produce a VOT distinction? (3) How do children's productions of a VOT distinction compare with those of adult models? Are children making use of VOT in the same way as do adults? (4) How do the VOT values of children's stops change over time? The second section of the bibliography is devoted to studies of speech perception by infants, that is, investigation of infants' abilities to discriminate among various speech sounds. Studies by the following authors are included in the bibliography: Leigh Lisker, Arthur Abramson, Malcolm Preston, Catherine Wolf, Diane Kewley-Port, L. Williams, Claude Simon, Jane Baran, Marsha Z. Laufer, Ray Daniloff, Jeff Elman, Daly Enstrom, Barbara Moslin, L.A. Streeter, T.K. Landauer, Marsha Zlatin, Roy Koenigsknecht, Z.S. Bond, Howard Wilson, J.H.V. Gilbert, Marlys Macken, David Barton, Philip Morse, Patricia Kuhl, Rebecca Eilers, Fred Minifie, Robert Lasky, Ann Syrdal-Lasky, Robert Klein and Lynn Streeter. (AMH)
