Nelson, Lauren K.; Bauer, Harold R.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n4 p879-92 Aug 1991
This study examined how five normally developing two-year-old children manage the relationship between phonetic production and production of word combinations in their spontaneous speech. Results revealed tradeoffs between complexity of word combinations and both accuracy of consonant production and phonetic complexity of individual lexical items. (Author/DB)
