Durations of syllables for repeated non-words were calculated for 76 children with cochlear implants (CIs) and 16 children with normal hearing (NH). Average syllable durations did not differ significantly between the groups, however a final syllable lengthening ratio in CI children was significantly shorter than for their NH peers. Measures of hearing related demographics were not correlated with CI syllable measures.
