A phonetic and acoustic study of babbling in an Italian child

This single case study focuses on the phonetic aspect of early speech development, namely babbling and early words, and presents a perceptive as well as an acoustic analysis. Results show that, while generic progress may be found in the increasing prevalence of the number of CV syllables within the global repertory of utterances, the aspects that better reveal the influence of the target language include the frequency of occurrence of vowel and consonant types, in combination with an expansion and refining of phonotactic possibilities
