We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I am a PhD student in Turkey.  I have been working on my dissertation on
the markedness differential hypothesis and the phonological errors of
Turkish EFL learners.  So far, I have been unable to find previous research
done on the errors of L2 speakers in vowel and diphthong production. Can
anyone refer me to useful resources please? I found many articles on
epenthesis, syllable structure, stress patterns, and consonant deletion. 
However, I was unable to find anything on interlanguage studies conducted
on vowel production.
