Speech samples of 12 speakers (8 children and 4 adults) producing the fricatives /s/ and/sh/ followed by the vowels /i/ and /u/ were analyzed to locate the major spectral prominences. Results showed that the fricative low-frequency prominences for children's samples differed from those of adults in three important ways: (1) They were generally higher in frequency; (2) they were greater in amplitude relative to higher frequency regions; and (3) they showed greater effects of vowel context.
