Write a brief descriiption of your topic, and why it’s interesting to you. (100-150 words)
Find 5 Peer-reviewed Journal articles that each provide relevant information about your topic.
One article can be a review article. The others should report on original research.
At least 3 of the articles need to be published in the last 10 years. The others can be older. Your goal will be to find a few sources that represent the current state of knowledge.
Construct a descriiptive annotated bibliography for these 5 sources. (~300 words each), being careful to avoid plagiarism.
Include a summary statement at the end, synthesizing what you learned. (~200 words)
You only need to do four I will provide one that I did to show what I need below this.
Burns, Tracey C., et al. “The Development of Phonetic Representation in Bilingual and
Monolingual Infants: Applied Psycholinguistics.” Cambridge Core, Cambridge
University Press, 11 June 2007.
This article looks into phonetic representations in infants in bilingual households being exposed to French and English from birth and compares it to the phonetic representations of infants born in monolingual households being exposed only to English. This article uses infants across three age groups: 6-8, 10-12 and 14-20 months in order to see if bilingual infants would develop and show two phonetic representations for both English and French. The speech sounds chosen for the test groups were from a narrow range of the VOT continuum as English and French languages place their boundaries between the voiced and voiceless categories differently. The findings of the first experiment with 6-8 year olds, as expected due to their young age, saw no real differences between the two categories of test subjects. The second experiment testing infants 14-20 months old found much different results, as instead of responding alike, the bilingual infants responded quickly to both English and French showing their sensitivity to phonetic boundaries consistent with both languages. In their third and final experiment, they looked at ages 10-12 months finding similar results to the second experiment as the bilingual infants were able to notice the phonetic boundaries of both languages. Overall, the researchers found through the results of the second and third studies that the time in which a bilingual infant takes to develop phonetic representation in both French and English is not delayed, and may be very similar to monolingual infants.
