- Hodson and Paden (1983) purport that intense, repeated, and systematic exposure to multiple examples of phonological targets and contrasts evoke the production of those targets.
- Hodson and Paden (1991) provide evidence that focused auditory stimulation is effective for very young children or children who are unwilling or unable to produce target sounds.
- Numerous studies show that auditory bombardment increases lexical frequency and controls phonological input . . . potentially presenting opportunities for children to discover and produce phonological patterns for themselves (Bowen, 1998; Weiner, 1981).
- Pye, Ingram, and List (1987) found that auditory bombardment facilitated phonological change by increasing the frequency of some targets.
