Children and adults appear to weight some acoustic cues differently in perceiving certain speech contrasts. One possible explanation for this difference is that children and adults make use of different strategies in the way that they process speech. An alternative explanation is that adult-child cue weighting differences are due to more general sensory (auditory) processing differences between the two groups. It has been proposed that children may be less able to deal with incomplete or… CONTINUE READING
