Paths and stages in acquisition of the phonological word in Hebrew
The chapter traces the acquisition of the phonological word in Hebrew, with reference to the development of the prosodic word (number of syllables), the foot (stress patterns), the syllable and its sub-syllabic units (onset and coda), and the segments and their features. For each type of phonological structure, we (i) provide distributional data about Hebrew, in order to evaluate the role of frequency in phonological development; (ii) discuss the constraints active during the different stages of development; and (iii) consider the simplification strategies children apply en route to faithful targets. In conclusion, we consider the resources that children employ in the course of their phonological development.
