Title(s):
Variability in naturalistic child directed speech: word final consonant clusters in British English
Abstract:
Parents’ speech to children (CDS) may not be as hyperarticulated as sometimes assumed. Using a new naturalistic corpus, this talk shows that there is considerable phonological variation in word-final consonant clusters in CDS. This being the case, children might not be expected to produce these in a targetlike manner.
