Prosodic Markers of Syntactic Boundaries in the Speech of 4-Year-Old Children with Normal and Disordered Language Development.
Snow, David
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v41 n5 p1158-70 Oct 1998
This study examined falling tone and final syllable lengthening in the spontaneous speech of 10 4-year-old children with specific language impairment (SLI). The falling tone was observed in 9 of the 10 SLI children, despite deficits in segmental phonology, morphosyntax, and mean length of utterance, suggesting a possible dissociation between prosodic and morphosyntactic development.
