Recognizing familiar and foreign words and music by children and adults: An examination of the critical period hypothesis
Keywords:Acoustic wave propagation, Acoustic waves, Speech analysis, Speech recognition, Language acquisition, Music acquisition, Sound recognition
AbstractThe relative ease with which children versus adults carried out a recognition task for words in their own versus an unfamiliar language was investigated. According to the critical period hypothesis it was predicted that the difference in the foreign and native recognition scores for music and language would be less than the respective difference within these two acoustical domains for adults.
