Abstract [en]

This paper tries to detail two aspects of speech acquisition by infants which are often assumed to be intrinsic or innate knowledge, namely number of degrees of freedom in the articulatory parameters and the acoustic correlates that find the correspondence between adult speech and the speech produced by the infant. The paper shows that being able to distinguish the different vowels in the vowel space of the certain language is a strong motivation for choosing both a certain number of independent articulatory parameters as well as a certain scheme of acoustic normalization between adult and child speech.
