Emergence of language-specific constraints in perception of non-native speech: A window on early phonological development. Best, C. T In Developmental neurocognition: Speech and face processing in the first year of life, volume 69, pages 289-304. Kluwer, Dordrecht.
abstract   bibtex   
(from the chapter) [present evidence which suggests] that mature listeners' discrimination is constrained by perceived similarities between non-native sounds and native categories, and that this native language influence may not be fully developed at 10-12 mo / [asks] what sort of information in speech forms the basis for perception of equivalence classes or phonemic contrasts / argue that distal articulatory gestures, rather than proximal auditory-acoustic cues or abstract phonetic features, are the primitives both for adults' perceptual assimilations of non-native phones and for infants' emerging recognition of native categories
