The Cultural Basis of Prosodic Modifications to Infants and Children: A Response to Fernalds' Universalist Theory.
Ingram, David
Journal of Child Language, v22 n1 p223-33 Feb 1995
Presents arguments against A. Fernald's (1987, 1989) universality of prosodic modifications in speech addressed to infants and supports the cultural account of prosodic modifications to infants and children. Data are presented to defend N. Bernstein-Ratner and C. Pye (1984) conclusions on Quiche mothers and are used to reinterpret the universal position in A. Fernald (1987) from a more cultural perspective. (11 references) (NAV)
