- Résumé : This study extends a cross-linguistic collaboration on phonological development, which aims to compare production of word-initial obstruents across sets of languages which have comparable consonants that differ in overall frequency or in the frequency with which they occur in analogous sound sequences. By comparing across languages, the influence of language-specific distributional patterns on consonant mastery can be disentangled from the effects of more general phonetic constraints on development. To extend the comparison to French, we counted type frequencies in French databases and did a preliminary experiment with French-acquiring two-year-old children. In preparation for studying the effects of Drehu exposition in Drehu and French bilingual children, we counted frequencies in Drehu.
