Variation in Human Biology and Child Phonology: A Response to Goad & Ingram.
Locke, John L.
Journal of Child Language, v15 n3 p663-68 Oct 1988
Suggests that Goad & Ingram's (1987) argument in favor of a cognitive model of phonological development failed to recognize the uniqueness of each individual's neural and vocal structures, ignored documented variability in the phonetic patterns of prelexical infants, and inexplicably assumed that inter-child variability implied the operation of cognitive factors.
