Syllable Onsets: Clusters and Adjuncts in Acquisition.
Gierut, Judith A.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v42 n3 p708-26 Jun 1999
Two experiments with 11 children (ages 3 to 7) exhibiting functional phonological delays evaluated the Sonority Sequencing Principle (a principle governing the permissible sequences of consonants within syllables) as applied to the acquisition of onset clusters and adjuncts. Findings are integrated in discussion of the representation of onset clusters and their emergence in phonological acquisition relative to the Sonority Sequencing Principle. (Author/DB)
