The Cries of Infants of Differing Levels of Perceived Temperamental Difficultness: Acoustic Properties and Effects on Listeners.
Lounsbury, Mary L.; Bates, John E.
Child Development, v53 n3 p677-86 Jun 1982
The meaning of mothers' perceptions of their infants' temperamental "difficultness" was explored in three ways. Subjective ratings were elicited from mothers who listened to the cries of four- to six-month-old infants who were not their own. Acoustic properties of the cries of the infants were measured and effects of a variety of listener background, personality, and attitude variables were considered. (Author/RH)
