Developmental aspects of infant speech discrimination: the role of linguistic experience

Abstract

The human infant, once thought to be endowed with very limited auditory perceptual capabilities, has lately been credited with innate, complex speech discrimination abilities. This article reviews and evaluates the evidence for innate speech discrimination processing and examines the role of specific language experience in moderating innate abilities. © 1985.
