Factors Influencing Fundamental Frequency Range Estimates in Children Selected elicitation conditions were manipulated to determine their effect on fundamental frequency (Fo) range estimates in children. Forty normal children each responded to five autiotaped tone conditions: (a) discrete steps, (b) slow steps, (c) fast steps, (d) slow glissando, and (e) fast glissando.

Selected elicitation conditions were manipulated to determine their effect on fundamental frequency (Fo) range estimates in children. Forty normal children each responded to five autiotaped tone conditions: (a) discrete steps, (b) slow steps, (c) fast steps, (d) slow glissando, and (e) fast glissando. These tonal stimuli were devised to elicit each child's maximal and minimal Fo. The traditional discrete-steps condition was associated with a lower maximal Fo, higher minimal Fo, and a more restricted Fo range than all other conditions.
