Pitch Characteristics of Japanese Maternal Speech to Infants.
Masataka, Nobuo
Journal of Child Language, v19 n2 p213-23 Jun 1992
Quantitative measures were made of the fundamental frequency patterns of Japanese mother's speech addressed to infants aged 0;3-0;4. Frequency ranges were found to change with repeated attempts to get the infant's attention but were not otherwise altered substantially from normal adult patterns when an initial attempt was made to gain the infant's attention.
