The end game of my PhD project is to be able to use the amplitude of the mismatch negativity (MMN) response to quantify the degree of language-specific processing of speech sounds. In the talk, I will first give an overview of the event-related potential component MMN and the processes that it is considered to reflect. This will be followed by an outline of previous research on the topic language-specific processing of speech sounds, with special focus on development and on the use of MMN. Thirdly, I will present my own studies, both those that I have already done or started piloting and the ones that are currently still in the planning stage.
