    Abstraction and the Language Familiarity Effect.Elizabeth K. Johnson, Laurence Bruggeman & Anne Cutler - 2018 - Cognitive Science 42 (2):633-645.
    Talkers are recognized more accurately if they are speaking the listeners’ native language rather than an unfamiliar language. This “language familiarity effect” has been shown not to depend upon comprehension and must instead involve language sound patterns. We further examine the level of sound-pattern processing involved, by comparing talker recognition in foreign languages versus two varieties of English, by English speakers of one variety, English speakers of the other variety, and non-native listeners. All listener groups performed better with native than (...)

    Some Implications From Language Development for Merge.Peter W. Jusczyk & Elizabeth K. Johnson - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (3):334-335.
    Recent investigations indicate that, around 7-months-of-age, infants begin to show some ability to recognize words in fluent speech. In segmenting and recognizing words, infants rely on information available in the speech signal. We consider what implications these findings have for adult word recognition models in general, and for Merge, in particular.
