Acoustic Correlates of Stress in Young Children's Speech.
Kehoe, Margaret; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n2 p338-50 Apr 1995
Fundamental frequency, duration, and amplitude measures were extracted from stressed and unstressed syllables in interword and intraword comparisons. Analysis of target stress patterns revealed no difference between acoustic marking of stress by 6 adults and 22 toddlers. Findings indicate that children generally control these variables to derive identifiable stress contrasts but in not completely adult-like ways. (Author/PB)
