Green, James A.; Gustafson, Gwen E.; McGhie, Anne C.
Child Development, v69 n2 p271-79 Apr 1998
Examined differences in acoustic characteristics of cries, both early and late, within a prolonged crying bout. Results indicated that late cries appeared to result from a smaller number of factors than did early cries. Results support notions that crying bouts settle into a regular cry with acoustic features matching a theoretical model of cry production. (Author/KB)
