How Children Learn to Organize Their Speech Gestures: Further Evidence from Fricative-Vowel Syllables.
Nittrouer, Susan; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v39 n2 p379-89 Apr 1996
Investigation into age-related differences in production of fricative-vowel syllables with 10 adults and 30 children (ages 3, 5, and 7) found that age-related differences in vocal-tract geometry didn't explain age-related differences in vowel effects on fricative noise; children master intersyllabic gestural organization prior to intrasyllabic gestural organization; and children's vowel gestures are more spatially distinct than those of adults.
