The Tennessee Test of Rhythm and Intonation Patterns (T-TRIP) is a three-part suprasegmental test with 25 test items. The test items consisted of the nonsense syllable /ma/ that was spoken and recorded with different rhythm and intonation patterns. Ten three-year-olds and 10 five-year-olds imitated the pattern they heard. The five-year-olds scored significantly better than the three-year-olds. The T-TRIP appears sensitive to differences between groups of different ages.
