Although it is well documented that children undergo a productive vocabulary spurt late in the second year, it is unclear whether this development is accompanied by equally significant advances in receptive word processing. In the present study, we tested an electrophysiological procedure for assessing receptive word learning in young children, and the(More)
The present study investigated the brain mechanisms involved during young children's receptive familiarization with new words, and whether the dynamics of these mechanisms are related to the child's productive vocabulary size. To this end, we recorded event-related potentials (ERPs) from 20-month-old children in a pseudoword repetition task. Results(More)
Deviances in early event-related potential (ERP) components reflecting auditory and phonological processing are well-documented in children at familial risk for dyslexia. However, little is known about brain responses which index processing in other linguistic domains such as lexicon, semantics and syntax in this group. The present study investigated(More)
Our paper addresses the question of cross-linguistic similarities and differences in the articulatory patterns of plosives. An EPG investigation of the English and Norwegian plosives /t/ and /d/ shows a larger contact area between tongue and palate for /t/ than for /d/ in both languages. The investigation also shows a more laminal articulation, larger(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to create 12 ten-sentence lists for the Norwegian Hearing in Noise Test for children, and to use these lists to collect speech reception thresholds (SRTs) in quiet and in noise to assess speech perception in normal hearing children 5 to 13 years of age, to establish developmental trends, and to compare the results with(More)
Functionally relevant assessment of the language production of speakers with aphasia should include assessment of connected speech production. Despite the ecological validity of everyday conversations, more controlled and monological types of texts may be easier to obtain and analyse in clinical practice. This article discusses some simple measurements for(More)
Our paper addresses the question of covariation between intraoral air pressure and size of contact area between tongue and palate during the articulation of the Norwegian stop consonants /t/ and /d/. An EPG investigation of the two plosives shows a larger contact area between tongue and palate for /t/ than for /d/. An investigation of intraoral air pressure(More)
