Generalized Vocal Imitation in Infants.
Poulson, Claire L.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v51 n2 p267-79 Apr 1991
Describes a study of three infants whose parents presented vocal models for the infants to imitate. Parents presented vocal models both with and without social praise. Infants showed systematic increases in matching after praise was introduced. Nonmatching vocalizations did not increase with introduction of praise. Findings demonstrate generalized vocal imitation in infants. (GH)
