Truncation Patterns in English-Speaking Children's Word Productions.

Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n3 p526-41 Jun 1997
This study examined 18 22-to-34-month-old children's truncation patterns in multisyllabic words. In strong-weak-strong-weak and strong-weak-weak words, final unstressed syllables were more frequently preserved than nonfinal unstressed syllables. Results revealed a significant stress pattern effect on truncation rate and support the interaction between metrical, syllabic, and acoustic salience factors in children's multisyllabic word productions.
