Sanchez-Azanza and Daniel Adrover-Roig (eds.), pp. 75–90
Comparative study with infants differing in gestational age at birth, tested on a dual word segmentation and mapping task with natural language passages and visual cues to facilitate word extraction and word-referent association, two abilities linked to vocabulary building. Infants were tested at… read more | Chapter
Teixidó, Maria, Clément François, Laura Bosch and Claudia Männel 2018 Chapter 5. The role of prosody in early speech segmentation and word-referent mapping: Electrophysiological evidenceThe Development of Prosody in First Language Acquisition, Prieto, Pilar and Núria Esteve-Gibert (eds.), pp. 79–100
This chapter reviews electrophysiological studies on early word-form segmentation and word-referent mapping, with a focus on the role of prosody in these early abilities closely related to vocabulary acquisition. First, we will review event-related brain potential (ERP) studies on word segmentation… read more | Chapter
Cross-dialect differences might be restricted to prosodic properties, but language dialects can also differ at the segmental level affecting vowel and/or consonantal sound repertoires. Examining infants’ ability for crossdialectal discrimination can be informative about the early availability of… read more | Article

Early sensitivity to the predominant lexical stress pattern (trochaic) in the native language has been observed in English and German, two stress-timed languages… read more | Article
