Development of Intontation Production by Children with Cochlear Implants

As previously posted on our Blog, Dr. Mahshie presented at the 6th International Conference on Tone and Intonation in Europe (TIE) in Utrecht, Netherlands. His presentation was titled "Development of intonation production for yes/no questions and statements by English speaking children with cochlear implants."  The data suggests that children with cochlear implants may exhibit early reliance on whatever intonation cues (i.e., temporal and spectral information) are available, in absence of fundamental frequency information.
