Speech and gesture
DescriptionTwenty-eight typically developing preschool children were tested in 2 experiments. In a perception experiment, the children heard phonologically minimal quartets of words and chose which of 4 pictures matched the target word (e.g., selecting a picture of a snail from among pictures of snail, sail, nail, and mail). In a production experiment, they repeated the target word (e.g., snail). These experiments revealed evidence of a link between perception and production at age 4 and 5, but not at age 3, suggesting that the link between speech perception and production develops during the preschool years.
