Exemplarbasierte Annäherungen an das Silbengelenk

  • Using elicited experimental data from 35 kindergartners, this article investigates the ability of children aged 3–6 to deal with German ambisyllabic consonants. In this age group – yet without structured tuition in reading and writing, the development of the phonologic system still in progress – both intra- and inter-subject variation appears to be greater than previous studies conducted on school children revealed. It is argued that this variability supports the view of an exemplar-based theory on language acquisition; stable analytic knowledge on this specific syllable structure emerges as a function of age and frequency. Simultaneously, the data suggest a second kind of underlying variation, stemming from the contact of two conflicting typological syllable systems.
