Abstract

No clear picture exists of the f0 developmental pattern of typically developing infants. Methodological differences (e.g. type of vocalisations included for analysis) have been found to contribute to this. This paper approaches the f0 characteristics of infant vocalisations from the perspective of modal and non-modal voice qualities to more fully understand their role in the overall developmental contour. The results presented in this paper support the notion that the f0 of infant vocalisations provides insight into how an infant learns to exercise vocal control and that voice quality is a useful category through which to investigate these developments.
