In order to investigate the precise acoustic features of stop consonants that pose perceptual difficulties for some children with learning problems, discrimination thresholds along two separate synthetic /da-ga/ continua were compared in a group of children with learning problems (LP) and a group of normal children. The continua differed only in the duration of the formant transitions. Results showed that simply lengthening the formant transition duration from 40 to 80 ms did not result in… CONTINUE READING
