This paper reports on increases in the phonetic inventories of nine children in the fifth and sixth years of experience with cochlear implants. Thirty-six of 44 phones in Australian English reached criterion levels, resulting in intelligible, but not completely natural, speech. The rate of improvement in the sixth year was slow, indicating a probable plateau in performance. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
