    The role of the second language in third language acquisition: the case of Germanic syntax2007In: Second Language Research, ISSN 0267-6583, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 459-484Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study of the placement of sentence negation in third language acquisition (L3), we argue that there is a qualitative difference between the acquisition of a true second language (L2) and the subsequent acquisition of an L3. Although there is considerable evidence for L2 influence on vocabulary acquisition in L3, not all researchers believe that such influence generalizes to morphosyntactic aspects of the grammar. For example, Håkansson et al. (2002) introduce the Developmentally Moderated Transfer Hypothesis (DMTH), which incorporates transfer in Processability Theory (PT). They argue against syntactic transfer from L2 to L3. The present study presents counter-evidence to this hypothesis from two groups of learners with different L1s and L2s acquiring Swedish or Dutch as L3. The evidence clearly indicates that syntactic structures are more easily transferred from L2 than from L1 in the initial state of L3 acquisition. The two groups behave significantly differently as to the placement of negation, a difference that can be attributed to the L2 knowledge of the learners in interaction with the typological relationship between the L2 and the L3.

    Den ämnesteoretiska kunskapsbasen för sfi‐läraruppdraget: - och om professionalitet, professionalisering och behovet av formell utbildning för sfi-lärare2007Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Många lärare, skolledare, studerande och förvaltningstjänstemän har genom åren tagit kontakt med Nationellt centrum för svenska som andraspråk för att få klarhet i vad som ska krävas för "behörighet" att undervisa i sfi.

    För att sfi‐lärare ska kunna få sina kunskaper validerade, måste det finnas en möjlighet att relatera den individuella kompetensen till en beskriven och fastställd kunskapsbas som är allmänt giltig för uppdraget att undervisa inom sfi.

    Avsaknaden av beskrivningar av sfi‐läraryrkets kunskapsbas har skapat en osäkerhet bland såväl tjänstemän som ska rekrytera lärare som bland enskilda individer som genom utbildning vill skaffa sig kvalifikationer som gör att de kan bedriva sfi‐undervisning. Denna osäkerhet förstärks genom att det saknas riktlinjer i frågan i såväl skollagen och andra gällande styrdokument som i annan skriven information från myndigheter inom skol‐området. Någon sådan information tillhandahålls inte heller av de lärosäten som erbjuder fristående kurser, eller inriktningar i lärarprogrammen inom området svenska som andraspråk.

    Det var bland annat mot denna bakgrund som Myndigheten för skolutveckling gav NC det uppdrag som enligt överenskommelsen har följande innehåll:

    1. att NC ska göra en analys och bedömning av vilka kunskaper och vilken kompetens inom ämnet svenska som andraspråk som kan anses nödvändiga för lärare som är verksamma inom sfi
    2. att analysen också är tänkt att utgöra ett underlag och stöd till lärosäten då validering av yrkesverksamma sfi‐lärares kompetens kan bli aktuell
    3. att analysen bland annat ska bygga på ett antal intervjuer med sfi‐studerande, sfi‐lärare, skolledare och företrädare för lärosäten, samt med representanter för Sveriges kommuner och landsting
    4. att jämförelse kan göras med liknande analyser av lärarkompetens i andraspråksundervisning för vuxna i övriga nordiska länder, och med den dokumentation av kompetensdiskussioner som förts med sfi‐lärare vid Myndigheten för skolutvecklings seminarier under våren 2007

    Uppdraget skulle genomföras under perioden juni till oktober 2007.

    Speech and language development in a population of Swedish hearing-impaired pre-school-children, a cross-sectional study2007In: International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, ISSN 0165-5876, E-ISSN 1872-8464, Vol. 71, no 7, p. 1061-1077Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: There is little information on speech and language development in preschool children with mild, moderate or severe hearing impairment. The primary aim of the study is to establish a reference material for clinical use covering various aspects of speech and language functions and to relate test values to pure tone audiograms and parents' judgement of their children's hearing and language abilities. Methods: Nine speech and language tests were applied or modified, both classical tests and newly developed tests. Ninety-seven children with normal hearing and 156 with hearing impairment were tested. Hearing was 80 dB HL PTA or better in the best ear. Swedish was their strongest language. None had any additional diagnosed major handicaps. The children were 4-6 years of age. The material was divided into 10 categories of hearing impairment, 5 conductive and 5 sensorineural: unilateral; bilateral 0-20; 21-40; 41-60; 61-80 dB HL PTA. The tests, selected on the basis of a three component language model, are phoneme discrimination; rhyme matching; Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT-III, word perception); Test for Reception of Grammar (TROG, grammar perception); prosodic phrase focus; rhyme construction; Word Finding Vocabulary Test (word production); Action Picture Test (grammar production); oral motor test. Results: Only categories with sensorineural toss showed significant differences from normal. Word production showed the most marked delay for 21-40 dB HL: 5 and 6 years p < 0.01; for 41-60 dB: 4 years p < 0.01 and 6 years p < 0.01 and 61-80 dB: 5 years p < 0.05. Phoneme discrimination 21-40 dB HL: 6 years p < 0.05; 41-60 dB: 4 years p < 0.01; 61-80 dB: 4 years p < 0.001, 5 years p < 0.001. Rhyme matching: no significant difference as compared to normal data. Word perception: sensorineural 41-60 dB HL: 6 years p < 0.05; 61-80 dB: 4 years p < 0.05; 5 years p < 0.01. Grammar perception: sensorineural 41-60 dB HL: 6 years p < 0.05; 61-80 dB: 5 years p < 0.05. Prosodic phrase focus: 41-60 dB HL: 5 years p < 0.01. Rhyme construction: 41-60 dB HL: 4 years p < 0.05. Grammar production: 61-80 dB HL: 5 years p < 0.01. Oral motor function: no differences. The Word production test showed a 1.5-2 years delay for sensorineural impairment 41-80 dB HL through 4-6 years of age. There were no differences between hearing-impaired boys and girls. Extended data for the screening test [E. Borg, A. Risberg, B. McAllister, B.M. Undemar, G. Edquist, A.C. Reinholdsson, et at., Language development in hearing-impaired children. Establishment of a reference material for a ""Language test for hearing-impaired children"", Int. J. Pediatr. Otorhinolaryngot. 65 (2002) 15-26] are presented. Conclusions: Reference values for expected speech and language development are presented that cover nearly 60% of the studied population. The effect of the peripheral hearing impairment is compensated for in many children with hearing impairment up to 60 dB HL. Above that degree of impairment, language delay is more pronounced, probably due to a toss of acuity. The importance of central cognitive functions, speech reading and signing for compensation of peripheral limitations is pointed out.

    En undersökning av sambandet mellan språklig och motorisk utveckling hos 8-16 månader gamla barn: En analys av föräldrars skattningar i testinstrumentet Swedish Early Communicative Development Inventory (SECDI)2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föräldrar till barn i åldrarna 8-16 månader har i samband med en forskningsstudie vid Stockholms universitet skattat sina barns färdigheter och förmågor med hjälp av formuläret SECDI. För undersökning av motorisk och språkliga utveckling hos barn valdes barn i åldrarna 8, 10, 12, 14 och 16 månader ut. Barnens skattade språkliga förmågor jämfördes med deras skattade motoriska förmågor. Syftet med detta specialarbete är att utifrån föräldrarnas skattningar av sina barns färdigheter undersöka om det finns ett samband mellan motorisk och språklig färdighet hos små barn. Undersökningens resultat påvisar ett sådant samband. Summan av antal förstådda respektive sagda ord korrelerade starkt med summan av antal gester. En bakomliggande variabel tros vara barnens ålder vilket visar sig som en signifikant korrelation mellan barnens språkliga och motoriska utveckling samt ålder.

    Abstract [sv]

    This article describes how new technological possibilities allow sign language researchers to share and publish video data and transcriptions online. Both linguistic and technological aspects of creating and publishing a sign language corpus are discussed, and standards are proposed for both metadata and transcription categories specific to sign language data. In addition, ethical aspects of publishing video data of signers online are considered, and suggestions are offered for future corpus projects and software tools.

    From questionnaires to parallel corpora in typology2007In: Sprachtypologie und Universalienforschung, ISSN 0942-2919, Vol. 60, no 2, p. 172-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This rather programmatic paper discusses the use of parallel corpora in the typological study of grammatical categories. In the author’s earlier work, tense-aspect categories were studied by means of a translational questionnaire, and “cross-linguistic gram-types” were identified through their distribution in the questionnaire. It is proposed that a similar methodology could be applied to multilingual parallel corpora. The possibility of identifying grammatical markers by word-alignment methods is demonstrated with examples from Bible texts.

    A perceptual bridge between coronal and dorsal /r/2007In: Experimental approaches to phonology, Oxford University Press, Oxford , 2007, p. 175-191Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A possible perceptual basis for change between coronal and dorsal rhotics was examined. An approximant /r/ continuum was synthesized with F2 and F3 ranging from ‘velar’ to ‘alveolar’ values. Listener responses indicated that the observed region was articulatorily ambiguous. It may, thus, constitute a perceptual bridge between coronal and dorsal rhotics, i.e., a perceptual basis for potential sound change.

    Detail in Vowel Area Functions2007In: Proceedings of the XVIth ICPhS, Saarbrücken, 6-10 August 2007, 2007, p. 513-516Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents some results and a small follow-up investigation from an MRI study of vowels [3], in which classical distance-to-area equations [5] were evaluated for implementation in sagittal view articulatory modelling. It was shown that an articulatorily more detailed application of the conversion rules improved the accuracy of the predicted areas, but that this increased realism failed to improve acoustic performance, if midline derivation and vocal tract termination points were kept the same. These results are discussed in relation to articulatory modelling in linguistic research. Work funded by the NIH (R01DC02014) and Stockholm University (SU617023001).

    Forma e funzione dell'espressione "hai capito?" nel dialetto di Pozzuoli2007In: Bollettino Linguistico Campano, ISSN 1722-0262, Vol. 11-12, p. 57-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    In questo contributo si propone un’analisi fonetica e conversazionale dell’espressione hai capito? (d’ora in avanti HC) in un corpus di parlato dialettale raccolto a Pozzuoli (NA). Questa espressione viene utilizzata frequentemente come appendice di fine enunciato (in inglese ending tag) e presenta realizzazioni molto variabili, raggiungendo spesso gradi molto avanzati di riduzione, sino a comparire talvolta in una forma minimale [trascrizione fonetica: ɛ]. Parallelamente alla riduzione fonetica, HC sembra essere soggetta a un processo di delessicalizzazione, venendo ad assumere funzioni pragmatiche peculiari. Si ipotizza che la variazione di pronuncia sia connessa (1) con funzioni diverse di questa espressione nella conversazione, per esempio se conclude un tema, o se è usata per tenere o lasciare il turno, e (2) con posizioni diverse nella catena sintagmatica, per esempio se è inclusa tra pause o se occorre nel mezzo della catena parlata. Obiettivo di questo lavoro è dunque descrivere la forma e la funzione del tag e discutere le condizioni di un’eventuale relazione tra questi due aspetti. Nei paragrafi 1.1-1.2 vengono introdotte alcune linee di ricerca, relative all’analisi della conversazione e ai modelli della riduzione fonetica, che costituiscono lo sfondo teorico sul quale si colloca il presente lavoro; in § 2 si introduce il fenomeno analizzato e si descrive la metodologia utilizzata; in § 3 si presentano i dati; in § 4 si discutono i risultati e si propone un’ipotesi di classificazione tipologica di HC.

    Charlatanry in forensic speech science: A problem to be taken seriously2007In: International Journal of Speech, Language and the Law: (formerly Forensic Linguistics: ISSN 1350-1771), ISSN 1748-8885, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 169-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A lie detector which can reveal lie and deception in some automatic and perfectly reliable way is an old idea we have often met with in science fiction books and comic strips. This is all very well. It is when machines claimed to be lie detectors appear in the context of criminal investigations or security applications that we need to be concerned. In the present paper we will describe two types of ‘deception’ or ‘stress detectors’ (euphemisms to refer to what quite clearly are known as ‘lie detectors’). Both types of detection are claimed to be based on voice analysis but we found no scientific evidence to support the manufacturers’ claims. Indeed, our review of scientific studies will show that these machines perform at chance level when tested for reliability. Given such results and the absence of scientific support for the underlying principles it is justified to view the use of these machines as charlatanry and we argue that there are serious ethical and security reasons to demand that responsible authorities and institutions should not get involved in such practices.

    Abstract [sv]

    Flerspråkiga ungdomars möte med den svenska skolan mynnar i bästa fall ut i en gemensam strävan mot ömsesidighet i läroprocess och integration. I denna artikel ser vi exempel på förhållningssätt och strategier som de unga utvecklar när en sådan ömsesidighet inte kommer till stånd. Ungdomarna tenderar exempelvis att söka sig till kontexter, såsom kamratgrupp och gemenskaper på internet, som bättre kan svara mot deras strävan att lära på villkor som utgår från deras erfarenheter i en vardag präglad av etnisk och språklig mångfald. Artikeln bygger på en etnografisk studie som genomfördes under tre år bland ungdomar i ett förortsområde i Stockholm. Studien visar hur föreställningar och förhållningssätt som betonar homogenitet och normalitet ifråga om t ex språk och identitet utmanas av de flerspråkiga ungdomarna. Deras förhandling präglas av kreativitet och en drivkraft att dra nytta av den flerspråkiga kompetens och de flerkulturella referensramar som finns bland dem. Med hjälp av analyser av språkliga samspel på mikronivå görs i artikeln ett försök att belysa processer på den mer övergripande och abstrakta makronivån. Genom en etnografisk forskningsansats möjliggörs ett longitudinellt perspektiv och en flerkontextuell utgångspunkt.

    Linguistic diversity, institutional order and sociocultural change: Discourses and practices among teachers in Sweden2007In: Learning and teaching in two languages? Resources of multilingual education in context, Peter Lang, Frankfurt a.M. , 2007Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The changes and transformations characteristic of late modernity increasingly also mark Sweden. Despite the fact that immigration to Sweden has grown over the years bringing about linguistic and ethnic diversity, the country still appears to be struggling with the idea of uniformity and homogeneity. Drawing on ethnographic research conducted in a multilingual school setting the present chapter focuses on the conflicting nature of contemporary Swedish society and sets out to examine the recurrent discourses on the increasing linguistic diversity and manifestations of these discourses in daily educational practice among teachers and students. The paper focuses in particular on how dominant discourses in society and across the institution are both reproduced and contested in the local discourses and in the daily teaching practices. The positionings and practices of the teachers offer insights into the traditional institutional order and the problems associated with it in late modern Sweden.

    Polysemy across image schemas: Swedish fram2007In: Studia Linguistica, ISSN 0039 3193, Vol. 61, no 1, p. 20–58-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been some reluctance among scholars to accept the possibility that the image schema structure for a polysemous word can vary from one subsense to another, one image schema dominating for one subsense and another for the other. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that this possibility does indeed exist. For the polysemous Swedish adverb or particle fram, it is shown that no less than four image schemas are primary in different subsenses, viz. the front-back schema, the centre-periphery schema, the source-path-goal schema, and the container schema. Furthermore, although these schemas also appear in backgrounded functions in other subsenses, thus securing the network, no single schema is present in all subsenses.

    Barnet och Ordet: Språkets gåta2007Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur går det till när människan börjar tala? Det är en fråga forskningen ännu inte lyckats finna svaret på. Det finns motstridiga teorier om i vilken mån den språkliga förmågan är medfödd.

    Ännu är det ingen som riktigt vet vad det är som gör att vi människor, inte bara kan utbringa enstaviga eller flerstaviga läten, utan också kombinera ett och flera ord till hierarkiskt uppbyggda meningar?

    I det sista programmet i tv-serien Barnet och orden söker reportern Paul Honkanen lösningen på Språkets gåta. Honkanen har varit med när Charlie, bara några månader gammal, intresserat följer mamma Fannys försök att få Charlie att förstå sambandet mellan en färgglad leksaksanka och ordet ”anka”.

    Charlie tittar, frustar, ler och tröttnar på ankan. Men mamma ger inte upp för det är inte långt kvar tills Charlie själv säger ”anka”. Barn har mycket lätt att lära språk, sämre går det när man blir vuxen. Barn lär sig språk på egen hand och struntar i om det blir fel till en början. De härmar, rättar och går vidare, precis på samma sätt som de lär sig gå.

    Paul Honkanen har också intervjuat språkforskare och följt deras experiment med små barn. Som avslutning på sitt sökande efter sanningen om språket reste han till Lissabon. Där har lingvister, tekniker och psykologer konstruerat Chico, en robotbaby som kan lära sig lyssna, härma och tala som ett barn. Chico språktränar tillsammans med doktoranden i datorteknik Jonas Hörnstein. Chicos alla framsteg registreras noga och forskarna är minst sagt nyfikna på vilka ledtrådar Chico ska ge dem till lösningen på språkets gåta.

    Bilingual practices in the process of initiating and resolving lexical problems in students' collaborative writing sessions2007In: International Journal of Bilingualism, ISSN 1367-0069, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 157-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the sequential organization of language choice and code-switching between Persian as a first language and Swedish as a second language in the process of initiating and resolving a problem of understanding and producing the correct version of a lexical item. The data consist of detailed transcripts of audio tapings of two bilingual students’ collaborative writing sessions within the frame of a one-year master’s program in computer science in a multilingual setting at a Swedish university. The students, both Persianspeaking, are advanced speakers of Swedish as a second language. For this article, four lexical language-related episodes, where code-switching between Persian and Swedish occurs, are analyzed. The analyzed excerpts in this article are drawn from a corpus of data consisting of language-related episodes identified and transcribed in  the audio tapings. We employ a conversation analysis (CA) approach for the analysis of bilingual interaction. This means that the meaning of the code-switching in the interaction is described in terms of both global (the conversational activity at large) and local interactional factors. In the analysis, a close step-by-step analysis of the turn-taking procedures demonstrates how the communicative meaning of the students’ bilingual behavior in a lexical episode is determined in its local production in the emerging conversational context and how it can be explicated as part of the following social actions: drawing attention to a problem, seeking alliance when a problem is made explicit and confirming intersubjective understanding when the problem is resolved.

    Between connectivity and modality: reported speech in interpreter-mediated doctor-patient communication2007In: Connectivity in grammar and discourse / [ed] Jochen Rehbein, Christiane Hohenstein, Lukas Pietsch, Amsterdam; Philadelphia: Benjamins , 2007, p. 395-417Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes data from doctor-patient interaction mediated by nonprofessional ad hoc-interpreters with a focus on the performance of ad hocinterpreters and their use of verba dicendi (“to say”, “to tell”, “to mean to say”). Our analysis of the Turkish and Portuguese language data shows that in both languages markers of reported speech are used both to establish ‘interactional coherence’ (Bührig 2002), and to express speaker stance. It seems that verba dicendi serve to especially emphasize the reliability of information provided by the doctor. In line with a general shift towards a more dynamic concept for the role of interpreters, our results also indicate that the different communicative functions of markers of reported speech should be part of interpreter training.

    Grammaticalization paths of periphrastic 'do'-constructions2007In: Studies van de Belgische Kring voor Linguïstiek: Travaux de Cercle Belge de Linguistique, Papers of the Lingustic Society of Belgium, Vol. 2, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study demonstrates cross-linguistic parallels in the grammaticalization of ‘do’-auxiliaries in ,periphrastic, verb constructions. Such constructions are exemplified by the phenomenon of ‘do’-support in English, where they are

    obligatory in interrogative and negative clauses. Similar phenomena can be attested across a wide range of genetically and typologically diverse languages. The auxiliary in ,periphrastic, ‘do’-constructions is derived from a ‘schematic action’ verb that can either be directly associated with a specific function, or it appears in the clause as a consequence of other grammatical

    factors. Based on a sample of 200 languages I will argue that ,periphrastic, ‘do’-constructions become grammaticalized in a limited range of grammatical context after going through a stage of optional usage, and also that direct expression of a verbal category by a ‘do’-auxiliary represents a possible final stage of grammaticalization of the ‘schematic action’-verb. The verbal

    categories expressed by such an element are restricted to a subsection of tense, aspect and mood. If in a given language the use of a ‘do’-auxiliary has become obligatory in association with other functions, the auxiliary will not grammaticalize further and continues as a semantically bleached dummy element. Tense, aspect and mood are therefore the only functional domains in which ‘do’-auxiliaries can become grammaticalized as meaningful elements.

    Investigating the Emergence of Speech Communication: A Study of Infants' Ability to Predict Phonetic Information2007In: Proceedings of EuroCogSci07: The European Cognitive Science Conference 2007, European Cultural Center of Delphi, Delphi/Greece, May 23-27, 2007, East Sussex: Hove , 2007, p. 694-699Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The introduction of this paper provides an overview of infants' prediction skills of action goals, as well as their ability to predict perceptual acoustic information. Prediction skills' neurological correlates in general are discussed. A central hypothesis under investigation is that there are commonalities between the development of speech and manipulation. The current research is focused on the communication mode investigating infants' ability to associate images of familiar objects with auditory-stimuli presented both as whole words in intact form and as disrupted (partly noise-replaced) spoken words. The looking behaviour of the infants was measured with the Tobii eye-tracking device. The results suggest that 11 to 16 month-old infants recognize the target object when the word referring to it was intact, i.e. when the name of the object was presented in its entirety. However, the infants did not seem to recognize the target object when the word referring to it was partially masked so that only its initial phonetic information was presented. These results indicate that young infants are sensitive to phonetic information of the words and may need more extensive linguistic experience in order to derive full lexical forms from partially masked words. The paper concludes with suggestions for future demonstrations of anticipation of speech.

    Estimates of Infants’ Vocabulary Composition and the Role of Adult-instructions for Early Word-learning2007In: Speech, Music and Hearing, Quarterly Progress and Status Report, TMH-QPSR, Proceedings from Fonetik 2007, May 30 - June 1, 2007. / [ed] Björn Granström, Anna Hjalmarsson, David House, Prebe Wik, Stockholm: Department of Speech, Music and Hearing, KHT, Printed by Universitetsservice AB , 2007, p. 53-56Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to assess characteristics of the growth of language in Swedish 7-15 months-old infants. More scpecifically, to estimate vocabulary composition (the 1st part of the study), information on 24 infants’ comprehension and production of speech was collected, and to investigate the role of adult-instructions for early word-learning ( the 2nd part of the study) video recordings of infant-adult interaction-dyads were produced. The vocabulary-data were collected based on parental reports using the Swedish version of the MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory. The subjects’ size of receptive and productive vocabulary across five semantic categories were estimated in a longitudinal perspective based on 45 completed forms. The infant-adult interaction data was likewise collected in a longitudinal perspective. The variables chosen for analyses of infant-adult interaction were: objective of the parent’s gestural instruction, objective of the parent’s vocal instruction, and focus of attention of the infant. The 1st part of the study showed an immense progress for comprehension within the receptive semantic categories of ‘phrases’ and ‘sounds’. The results for the 2nd part of the study showed a shift along a time axis from gestural instructions being mostly correlated with the attentional focus of the infant (at 7 months) to gestural and vocal instructions being equally common (at 15 months). A discussion on significance of these results will round off the paper.

    This snippet illustrates that placement of possessive clitics in Modern Greek can be used as heuristic for detecting a visible trace of N-to-D movement. The finding also supports the view that N>A strings involve movement chain.

    Predicting the consequences of vocalizations in early infancy2007In: Interspeech 2007: Proceedings of the 8th Annual Conference of the International Speech Communication Association, 2007, p. 2337-2340Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes a method to study the infant’s ability to predict the consequences of its vocalizations and presents the first results of the on-going investigation. The research method uses a voice-controlled device, with which the infant may control the position of a figure on a screen, in combination with an eye-tracking system (Tobii) that simultaneously registers the infant’s gaze fixations on the screen where the figure appears. The preliminary results indicate that 12.5 month-old infants seem to be able to predict the consequences of their vocalizations as indicated by the decrease in the mismatch between the infant’s gaze position and the location at which the figure is displayed as a function of the infant’s F0.
