The Effect of L1-L2 Vowel Category Mapping on L2 Word Learning: English Speakers Learning Arabic Pseudo-Words
Adult language learners often face challenges perceiving unfamiliar speech sounds. Models of second language (L2) speech perception suggest that adults learn L2 through the "filter" of their first language (L1), frequently resulting in misperception and the production of accented speech. The present study had two goals: 1) to examine the learning of a demanding L2 speech contrast by English listeners, and 2) to investigate the role of cognitive resources when learning novel phoneme categories.doi:10.22215/etd/2014-10216 fatcat:a7rhgciopfgjlpgqsnju6haq2e
