The fact that the native language influences non-native production and perception is common knowledge in the field of second language acquisition and cross-linguistic research.

First (L1) and second language (L2) phonological systems interact in various ways and many hypothesesAuthor: Irina Marinescu. Errors in the production of non-native sequences. The production of non-native sequences not only raises the question of which sequences are produced with the lowest accuracy, but also the issue of how speakers ultimately repair them.

Thus, the second experiment focuses on the nature of the by: Phonology, phonetics, or frequency: Influences on the production of non-native sequences Article in Journal of Phonetics 34(1) January. This paper reports two experiments on nonnative vowel perception and production.

Perceiving and producing native and non-native vowels English /ɛ/ did not reveal regional influence on production, so it was decided that the present study would focus on the Antwerp /i-ɪ/ contrast. Moreover, a second contrast is non-native vowel with their native /y/ sound. Non-native pronunciations of English result from the common linguistic phenomenon in which non-native users of any language tend to carry the intonation, phonological processes and pronunciation rules from their first language or first languages into their English speech.

They may also create innovative pronunciations for English sounds not found in the speaker's first. Although vowel quality is an important cue to the perception of English lexical stress, few studies have examined the role this cue plays for non-native speakers.

The overall purpose was to help document more fully developmental trends in the perception of vowel information and to determine whether or not children’s perception is in#uenced by lexical status. Phonetic perception in infancy and childhood. Speech perception difficulties have been found for the processing of non-native consonants (e.g., Werker and Tees, b), non-native vowels (e.g., Polka, ), and non-native tones (Gandour et al., ; Hallé et al., ; So and Best, ).

This is attested by the fact that adults will sometimes have difficulties identifying some non Cited by: 4. The perception and production of nonnative phones in second language (L2) learners can be improved via auditory training, but L2 learning is often characterized by large differences in performance across individuals.

This study examined whether success in learning L2 vowels, via five sessions of high-variability phonetic training, related to the learners’ native Cited by: Despite an extensive literature on the influence of a listener’s first language on the perception of second-language consonants and vowels, less work has been conducted on the influence of across-talker differences on non-native speech perception.

The primary aim of this study was to assess how across-talker differences influence non. Here's a true story: Someone I admire (a truly inspirational and amazing man) who trained himself to speak in a British accent.

He started when he was very young, perhaps middle school - if not younger. He was teased a lot by his classmates, who t. THE INFLUENCE OF METALINGUISTIC KNOWLEDGE OF SEGMENTAL PHONOLOGY ON As a result, non-native English speaking undergraduate students of English Language Teaching presented here zoom in at the vowel production Author: Ronaldo Mangueira Lima.

Furthermore, the relative importance of different types of variability to language learning, as well as production of non-native speech, is unknown. The English vowel duration patterns as a function of vowel produced by non-native speakers were generally similar to those produced by native speakers.

These results imply that using duration differences across vowels may be an important strategy for non-native speakers' production before they are able to employ spectral cues to produce and Cited by: 6. the non-native sequences presented, and speakers’ accuracy on the unattested sequences is evaluated with respect to the frequency measures.

Errors in the production of non-native sequences The production of non-native sequences not only raises the question of File Size: KB. L2 production, strongly suggests that production of non-native new vowels is not mediated by L2 perception.

In contrast, the compactness of L1 productions predicted L2 production accuracy. More specifically, speakers with more compact L1 productions produced L2 vowels more accurately than those whose L1 space was less compact.

Native Chinese speakers often struggle with the correct pronunciation of (American) English words, leading to daily misunderstandings.

A growing body of research investigating cross-linguistic influence on the acquisition of a third phonological system suggests that first (L1) and second (L2) languages concur in influencing oral production in the target third language (L3).

Yet, there are also claims of either a more noticeable effect of the L2 on the L3, or a prevailing influence from the : Raquel Llama, Walcir Cardoso. of the sound that they can use as a vowel in words. As a final example, consider the notorious ‘final consonant problem’.

Even this is not primarily a problem of articulation. Consider a sentence like ‘Put it back up’ - bound to be difficult for speakers of languages like Thai which have a limited range of consonants in word final position. findings, I propose that the native-language influence on perception of non-native phonetic contrasts begins with the older infant'semerging recognition that native speech sounds are struc­ tured as specific, recurring constellations or pat­ terns ofcoordination among phonetic-articulatory gestures (e.g., the pattern of temporal coordina­.

Researchers in the field of the teaching and learning of phonetics agree that learners of a foreign/second language (L2) acquire identical vowels by positive transfer from their first language (L1). This statement prompted us to examine whether the French and Czech languages, differing in the size of their vowel inventories, possess any identical vowels that could thus be omitted.

The difference in the native-advantage pattern between vowel production and perception could be due to several possibilities: first, the non-native listeners in the two studies may differ in English proficiency, due to the different length of US residency (i.e., 1–5 years for the production study and 1–2 years for the perception study Cited by: 2.Vowel epenthesis is a well known phenomenon that non-native speakers insert epenthetic vowels inside non-native consonant clusters.
