Infants' Sensitivity to Word Boundaries in Fluent Speech.
Myers, James; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v23 n1 p1-30 Feb 1996
Examines infants' sensitivity to word units in fluent speech by inserting one-second pauses either at boundaries between successive words or between syllables within words. Results indicate that, by 11 months, infants are sensitive to word boundaries, and that this sensitivity depends on more than prosodic information or prior knowledge. (65 references) (Author/CK)
