Does anyone know of acquisition studies done in vowel harmony
languages, or even just resources that have data from children's
speech in languages with vowel harmony ??


Thanks,

Fred Mailhot.

Subject: pseudoword database

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone is aware of or has a database of
pseudowords, i.e. words that English speakers can pronounce, but that
aren't true words in English. I'm looking for fillers for a lexical
decision task. I'm aware of the ARC database, but it contains only
monosyllabic pseudowords.

Thank you very much,


Carrie Ankerstein
