External Sources of Individual Differences? A Cross-Linguistic Analysis of the Phonetics of Mothers' Speech to 1-Year-Old Children.
Vihman, Marilyn M.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v30 n5 p651-62 Sep 1994
Sampled the speech of American, French, and Swedish mothers to their one-year olds, to analyze distribution of phonetic parameters of adult speech, as well as children's own early words. Found that variability is greater in child words than in adult speech, and mother-child dyads showed no evidence of specific maternal influence on phonetics of child's speech. (TM)
