Abstract [en]

Discrimination of native and nonnative speech contrasts, the heart of the concept of language-specific speech perception, is sensitive to developmental change in speech perception during infancy. Using the mismatch negativity paradigm, seven Swedish language environment 10-month-olds were tested on their perception of six different consonantal and tonal Thai speech contrasts, native and nonnative tothe infants. Infant brain activation in response to the speech contrasts was measured with event-related potentials (ERPs). They show mismatch negativity at 300 ms, significant for contrast change in the native condition, but not for contrast change in the nonnative condition. Differences in native and nonnative speech discrimination are clearly reflected in the ERPs and confirm earlier findings obtained by behavioural techniques. ERP measurement thus suitably complements infant speech discrimination research.
