Abstract:
			
Adult speech perception is characterized by perceptual integration
which gives rise to trading relations: less evidence from one acoustic
property can be offset by more evidence from another. This
dissertation reports perceptual experiments with young children native
in different dialects of English.

Identification results indicate that in perceiving final stop voicing,
young children differ from adults in predominantly using either vowel
duration or first formant offset frequency, rather than both. Which
property children use appears to be a function of dialect
background. Discrimination results suggest that integration may
develop, at least for some contrasts, on the basis of learning
patterns of covariation in the native language, with implications for
theories of speech perception.
