Distributional learning of speech sounds is learning from simply being exposed to frequency distributions of speech sounds in one's surroundings. In laboratory settings, the mechanism has been reported to be discernible already after a few minutes of exposure, in both infants and adults. These "effects of distributional training" have traditionally been attributed to the difference in the number of peaks between the experimental distribution (two peaks) and the control distribution (one or zero… CONTINUE READING
