Project information
Abstract: 

The main objective of this study is to investigate the acquisition of "lexical" stress and rhythm in the period when children produce canonical babbling and their first identifiable words. A good understanding of these phenomena in children''s speech is of prime importance because it has been shown that prosody plays a cardinal role in children''s language acquisition.
