Phrase-Final Syllable Lengthening and Intonation in Early Child Speech.
Snow, David
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n4 p831-40 Aug 1994
To test opposing theories about the relationship between intonation and syllable timing, these boundary features were compared in a longitudinal study of 9 children's speech development between the mean ages of 16 and 25 months. Results suggest that young children acquire the skills that control intonation earlier than they do skills of final syllable timing. (Author/DB)
