Contingencies Governing the Production of Fricatives, Africates, and Liquids in Babbling.
Gildersleeve-Neumann, Christina E.; Davis, Barbara L.; MacNeilage, Peter F.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n3 p341-63 Sep 2000
Presents case studies of the production of fricatives, affricates, and liquids--late-developing consonants--in the babbling of infants in an English-speaking environment. These consonants are compared with early-developing consonants--stops, nasals, and glides. Results provide evidence for the frame dominance conception but suggests early rarity of late-developing consonants may be a result of intrasegmental production difficulty. (Author/VWL)
