Speech scientists have long proposed that formant exaggeration in infant-directed speech plays an important role in language acquisition. This event-related potential (ERP) study investigated neural coding of formant-exaggerated speech in 6-12-monthold infants. Two synthetic ⁄ i ⁄ vowels were presented in alternating blocks to test the effects of formant exaggeration. ERP waveform analysis showed significantly enhanced N250 for formant exaggeration, which was more prominent in the rightdoi:10.1111/j.1467-7687.2010.01004.x pmid:21477195 fatcat:ikzrzoxenvannfeaveektk5jae
