First Language Phonological Development
Study of how children develop the phonology of the first
language(s) they are acquiring. In approaching this topic, I
consider both phonological (grammatical) factors such as segmental
and prosodic representations and constraints on these
representations as well as non-phonological factors such as
physiological and motor limitations inherent to children’s
vocal tract shape and motor control.
