Infants' sensitivity to lexical tone and stress in early speech perception

In this study, we look at what cues help babies tell the difference between their native language and a different language. Specifically, we compare babies who learn English, a language that only uses consonants and vowels to distinguish word meaning, and Thai, a language that also uses tones to distinguish word meaning.
