THE AGE OF ONSET OF CANONICAL BABBLING IN HEARING AND DEAF INFANTS In the context of the definition of canonical babbling, it was easy to see that hearing infants begin a stage where production of canonical syllables becomes routine and repetitive sometime in the middle of the first year of life. The three laboratories pursuing ethologically based description verified this point indisputably during the 1970s. In the context of this outcome, a tacit expectation developed that if an infant were to show very late onset of canonical babbling, there might be something amiss, simply because the onset of canonical babbling seemed to have all the earmarks of other developmental milestones, such as crawling, sitting unsupported, or rolling over.

In order for a quantitative demonstration of the difference in onset of canonical babbling in deaf and hearing infants to be made, it was necessary first to develop a formal distinction between canonical and precanonical vocalization. This formal distinction was codified and the term ‘‘canonical babbling’’ was coined in the early 1970s (Oller, 1976, 1980; Oller & Eilers, 1975). The basic idea of canonical babbling had emerged from longitudinal description of vocalizations in hearing infants. Three independent laboratories in the United States conducted such work in the 1970s (Oller, 1978; Stark, 1978; Zlatin, 1975), and all of them found it necessary to abandon the primary reliance on phonetic transcription as a method of description that had been traditional to that point.
