Infant-Directed Speech Facilitates Lexical Learning in Adults Hearing Chinese: Implications for Language Acquisition.
Golinkoff, Roberta Michnick; Alioto, Anthony
Journal of Child Language, v22 n3 p703-26 Oct 1995
This study used three experiments to study whether infant-directed (ID) or adult-directed (AD) speech facilitated the learning of Chinese vocabulary by adults whose native language was English and who had had no prior knowledge of Chinese. Results indicate that ID speech may play a pivotal role in early lexical acquisition. (51 references) (Author/CK)
