The proposed study aims to address the significant deficits in empirical data on telegraphic speech, through the exploration of whether telegraphic or fully grammatical speech is more advantageous in allowing children to understand simple sentences. In this study, we plan to investigate the impact of telegraphic and fully grammatical speech frames on familiar word recognition by manipulating the speech frames infants hear. Half of the time, the objects will be labeled by telegraphic speech (i.e. the elimination of articles and other nonessential words) while the other half of the time the objects will be labeled with fully grammatical speech. We will use a standard measure of word recognition, Looking-While-Listening, in which infants see two side-by-side images and hear one of the objects labeled with either telegraphic or fully grammatical speech. We will then analyze how quickly and accurately the infant looks to the labeled object, comparing the results for the participants' performance on telegraphic versus fully grammatical trials. By examining the speed and accuracy with which children recognize a familiar object, this study will provide empirical evidence about which type of speech children comprehend better at 14 months old.
