The Acquisition of Prosodic Structure: An Investigation of Current Accounts of Children's Prosodic Development.
Kehoe, Margaret; Stoel-Gammon, Carol
Language, v73 n1 p113-44 Mar 1997
Examines different approaches to prosodic acquisition: Gerken's S(W) production template; Fikkert's and Archibald's theories of stress acquisition and Demuth and Fee's prosodic hierarchy account. Results reveal that current approaches cannot account for findings in the data such as the increased preservation of final over nonfinal unstressed syllables and segmental and prominence effects on truncation rate.
