Preschoolers' Imitation of Intonation Contours.
Loeb, Diane Frome; Allen, George D.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v36 n1 p4-13 Feb 1993
Acoustic analyses, along with perceptual ratings, measured the extent to which preschoolers imitated three modeled intonation contours (declarative, interrogative, and monotone). Results indicated that five-year-old children imitated modeled contours more frequently than did three-year-old children, with between-group differences largely because of accuracy in imitating the interrogative contour.
