Ao Chen (Utrecht Institute of Linguistics)

René Kager (Utrecht Institute of Linguistics)

Paper Highlights

  • 4-month-old infants failed to discriminate non-native lexical tones.
  • 6- and 12-month-old infants discriminate non-native lexical tones, presented with either single or multiple tokens.
  • The improvement in perception may be the result of general cognitive development.
