Dik 1997): Broad focus falls on entire constituents or even whole sentences, whereas narrow focus applies to individual lexical items (F6ry 1988; Ladd 1980). Examples (16) and (17) illustrate broad focus (which can be described by the term "normal stress" as Ladd (1996) suggests). (16) He took the \ball.

Snow (1994) describes a regression to isochronicity of syllables in the production of single words, and Archibald (1995b) and Fikkert (1994) also claim that adult-like word stress is preceded by a phase of equal stress distribution on the syllables of a word. Elbers & Wijnen (1992), working on the basis of Levelt's (1989) speech production model, describe this phase as the transition from semantic to syntactic speech, which requires the development of a "formulator", a mental device encoding grammar and phonology in speech production.

This early child speech is variously called "holophrastic" (Oksaar 1977) and "asyntactic". g. Radford 1990). Crystal (1981, 1986) proposes a 5-stage model of the development of intonation: He assumes that the intonation of the first vocalisations by infants express their emotional state. As a next step, linguistic awareness of the differences in the use of intonation by adults is acquired. The first productions of pitch movement patterns by the infant are assumed to be accidental and meaningless and to correspond to babbling in the phonological development.
