Examined whether infants imitate the vocal pitch characteristics of adult caregivers and differentially adjust their vocal pitch or fundamental frequency toward that of their caregivers. Data are presented from a longitudinal case study of an infant recorded over several months, interacting with each parent. The infant did not demonstrate significant adjustment of vocal pitch in the direction of either parent. (Author/JL)
