Discrimination of Polysyllabic Sequences by One- to Four- Month-Old Infants.
Karzon, R. Gottlieb
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v39 n2 p326-42 Apr 1985
A high-amplitude sucking procedure, with synthesized female speech, was used to ascertain the effects of fundamental frequency, amplitude, and duration on discrimination of polysyllabic sequences. Results suggest that the exaggerated suprasegmentals of infant-directed speech may function as a perceptual catalyst, focusing the infant's attention on a distinctive syllable within the sequence.
