Distributional Characteristics of VOT in Children's Voiceless Aspirated Stops and Interpretation of Developmental Trends.
Koenig, Laura L.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v44 n5 p1058-68 Oct 2001
This study presents detailed distributional analyses of voice onset times (VOTs) from seven 5-year-old children and 14 adults. Distributional non-normality was common in both data sets with children showing greater skew. Results suggest that theories of VOT development should not be based solely on means and standard deviations but need to address distributional characteristics also. (Contains references.)
