Titre : The role of prosody in early speech processing and language acquisition

Résumé :
This talk will present a series of near-infrared spectroscopy studies, investigating how newborn infants process speech prosody. Specifically, it will show that newborns have already gained experience about the prosody of their native language from prenatal exposure, and that they use prosody as a privileged cue, overriding other aspects of language structure, such as word order.
