Word segmentation. One of the first problems infants must solve when learning language. Infants make use of many different cues - phonotactics, allophonic variation, metrical (stress) patterns, effects of coarticulation, and statistical regularities in syllable sequences. Statistics may provide initial bootstrapping - used very early (Thiessen & Saffran, 2003); language-independent.
