Speaker gender, child age, syntax, and the prosody of parentese

Paul Corthals UGent (2012) American Speech-language Hearing Association, Annual convention, Abstracts.
abstract
Parentese is the speech-language register adults switch to when talking to children. It regulates arousal, communicates affect, and its segment-marking prosody is thought to facilitate language learning. This "didactic prosody" is studied in 57 male and female parentese speakers addressing to children aged between 1 month and 5 years.
