Second language speech learning: Do cross-language phonetic relationships provide a full account? (CLaS-CCD Research Colloquium Series)
Speaker : Professor Ocke-Schwen Bohn, School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University, Denmark.
Date : 29th of March 2017, 11:00AM until 12:00PM
Location : Australian Hearing Hub, Level 3, Room 3.610, Macquarie University.
Current models of second language speech learning agree that production and perception difficulty is primarily due to the cross-language phonetic relationship of the sounds of the nonnative to the native language. This talk will first provide new findings which support this basic assumption, and will then present some clear evidence showing that second language learners may be (partly) immune to cross-language phonetic relationships either because of universal perceptual biases or because they are influenced by “higher-order” characteristics of the native and/or the nonnative language.
