Title:Brazilian Portuguese Syllabic Structure Acquisition: an analysis of the falling oral diphthongs
Authors:Giovana Ferreira-Goncalves
Abstract:The present work claims that the CVV syllable structure is acquired earlier than the CVC structure in Brazilian Portuguese. Such ordering stems from an analysis of the acquisition of falling oral diphthongs studied in the light of the Optimality Theory (OT) and the learning algorithm proposed by Tesar & Smolensky (2000).
