Prosodie et Syndrome de Williams : une étude inter-langue

Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate acoustic specificities of prosody in French-speaking and English-speaking children with Williams syndrome. Spontaneous productions based on a narrative task “Frog, Where Are You?” (Mayer, 1969) are analysed. Our study compared prosody in children with WS with two typically-developing groups, one matched on chronological age and one on developmental age. Participants were 7 French-speaking children with WS aged 6 to 13 years 7 months, and 13 English-speaking children with WS aged 6 to 13 years 11 months. Our analysis focused on the acoustic parameter of Fundamental Frequency Variation. Results discuss the following issues: 1. differences and similarities between prosodic profiles of French-speaking and English-speaking children with WS and typically-developing children, 2. differences between French-speaking and English-speaking children with WS and 3. prosodic development in children with WS.
