The study investigates whether a short formant
perturbation experiment elicits an adaptive response
under less controlled experimental circumstances.
30 Dutch children were recruited and tested at a
festival. They were asked to produce four target
words containing an open-mid front rounded vowel
/E/ while we manipulated their feedback so that
they would hear /I/ for a period of 16 trials.
Despite the short adaptation paradigm, our results
show that children significantly changed their vowel
productions in response to the perturbation. This
suggests that long and monotonous experimental
paradigms might not always be necessary, especially
with populations that have a shorter attention span.
