Phonetic Development in Early Infancy: A Study of Four Swedish Children during the First Eighteen Months of Life.
Roug, L.; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v16 n1 p19-40 Feb 1989
Analysis of longitudinal data on the phonetic development of Swedish infants (N=4) from 1 through 17 months of age showed five distinct stages in early vocalization development: glottal; velar/uvular; vocalic; reduplicated consonant babbling; and variegated consonant babbling. Comparison with infants of differing linguistic backgrounds indicated that babbling follows a universal developmental pattern. (Author/CB)
