Scheffel, Debora L.; Ingrisano, Dennis R-S
Infant-Toddler Intervention: The Transdisciplinary Journal, v10 n3 p127-35 Sep 2000
The nature of linguistic emphasis was studied from audio recordings of 29 mother-child dyads. Nineteen dyads involved mothers interacting with their 4-year-olds who evidenced language impairments. Approximately 84 percent of children evidencing language impairments could be so classified based on the acoustic variables associated with maternal use of emphasis. (Contains references.)
