AbstractThis study investigated vowels production by Cantonese-speaking children with cochlear implant. Nineteen subjects with cochlear implant age ranged 2;05 to 6;01 years old were compared to 19 hearing children. All participants were required to produce 51 words, covering seven Cantonese monophthongs /a, i, E, O, u, y, J/ and ten Cantonese diphthongs /ui, Oi, ai, iu, Ey, Ai, ou, ei, au, Au/. The production accuracy was compared. Error patterns were investigated by phonological process and acoustic analysis. The production accuracy from cochlear implant subjects with hearing experience less than two years was significantly different than that of hearing children with similar hearing experience. A developmental and universal phonological acquisition process was observed. Developmental phonological rules were found in erroneous production. Articulatory complexity played an important role in vowels acquisition in CI groups. The result demonstrated a positive influence of cochlear implant on vowels production in Cantonese-speaking children.
