Speech sound discrimination thresholds were obtained for two speech sound contrasts (/ba/ vs. /da/ and /ba/ vs. /ga/) for infant and adult subjects. The stimuli were computer-generated synthetic tokens. An adaptive (one-up, one-down) threshold procedure was used with the visual reinforcement infant speech discrimination procedure for the infant subjects. Adults were tested using the same apparatus and threshold-tracking protocol as the infants. There was a 28-dB difference in threshold for… CONTINUE READING
