Effects of Lexical Meaning and Practiced Productions on Coarticulation in Children's and Adults' Speech.
Siren, Kathleen A.; Wilcox, Kim A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n2 p351-59 Apr 1995
This study examined effects of familiarity with a speech target on coarticulation magnitude in 30 young children and 10 adults. Children exhibited a greater effect of a following vowel on the preceding fricative than did adults. Nonmeaningful production items exhibited greater effects of the vowel on the preceding fricative than did meaningful production items, regardless of age. (Author/PB)
