Beverly Anne Collisson, Susan A. Graham, Jonathan L. Preston, M. Sarah Rose, Sheila McDonald, Suzanne Tough
2016 Journal of Pediatrics  
Enveloping infants and toddlers in language-rich milieus that promote opportunities for playing, reading, and sharing books daily may decrease risk for delayed early vocabulary.  ...  Toddlers were significantly less likely to be late talkers if they engaged in informal play opportunities (P = .013), were read to or shown picture books daily (P < .001), or cared for primarily in child  ...  Discussion This large, prospective study identified risk and protective factors for late talking in a North American community cohort of 1023 toddlers between 24 and 30 months of age, quantifying the contribution  ...

The voice of experience: Causal inference in phonotactic adaptation

Thomas Denby, Matthew Goldrick
2021 Laboratory Phonology  
Talkers who differ in their language background are more likely to vary in their phonotactic grammars than talkers who share a language variety.  ...  In Experiment 1, English listeners exposed to talkers differing in language background (English versus French) showed a greater degree of adaptation relative to cases where the talkers shared a language  ...  Native English speakers made up 98% of participants, while one participant self-identified as speaking a non-North American dialect of English.  ...
