Discriminability and Perceptual Weighting of Some Acoustic Cues to Speech Perception by 3-Year-Olds.
Nittrouer, Susan
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v39 n2 p278-97 Apr 1996
This study tested the hypothesis that there is a developmental shift in the perceptual weighting of acoustic parameters that results from experience with a native language. Comparison of 17 3-year olds and 16 adults found that age-related differences in auditory sensitivity did not fully account for age-related differences in perceptual weighting strategies, thus only partially supporting this hypothesis.
