1. INTRODUCTION The term 'laboratory phonology' was invented more than a decade ago as the name of an interdisciplinary conference series, and all three of us have co-organized laboratory phonology conferences. Since then, the term has come into use not only for the conference series itself, but for the research activities exemplified by work presented(More)
A growing body of research has documented effects of phonotactic probability on young children's nonword repetition. This study extends this research in 2 ways. First, it compares nonword repetitions by 40 young children with phonological disorders with those by 40 same-age peers with typical phonological development on a nonword repetition task in which(More)
We design a neural network model of first language acquisition to explore the relationship between child and adult speech sounds. The model learns simple vowel categories using a produce-and-perceive babbling algorithm in addition to listening to ambient speech. The model is similar to that of Wester-mann & Miranda (2004), but adds a dynamic aspect in that(More)
Transcription-based studies have shown that the tense stop appears first in most children's speech among the three different types of homorganic stops (tense vs. lax vs. aspirated) despite its phonologically marked status. One might argue that this order of mastery is predicted by the short-lag Voice Onset Time (VOT) values of Korean tense stops, as in the(More)
