A Developmental Hierarchy of Syllabic Difficulty.
Lee, James F.
Hispania, v70 n2 p357-62 May 1987
Examination of the speech of 33 monolingual Spanish-speaking children found that syllable type affected the correct pronunciation of novel words. The different syllable types comprising the novel words could be hierarchized. Performance on syllable type appeared to be an interaction between the structure of the syllable and phonological processes affecting the production performance of children acquiring native language phonology.
