Lewis, Lawrence B.; Antone, Carol; Johnson, Jacqueline S.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n1 p45-59 Jan 1999
Investigated whether the content of infant speech productions is better characterized as preserving stressed and final syllables or as preserving a trochaic pattern; used a detailed longitudinal description of one child's syllable omission. Found that the trochaic template hypothesis was not supported by these early productions. (Author/JPB)
