Talking to Children: The Effects of Rate, Intonation, and Length on Children's Sentence Imitation.
Bonvillian, John D.; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v6 n3 p459-67 Oct 1979
The effects of speech rate, intonation, and sentence length on children's ability to imitate sentences were examined. Results indicate that adult speech is more readily imitated by children when intonation is normal, sentences are short, and speech rate is close to that of the child. (Author/AM)
