Abstract:

Although it has long been recognized that second language pronunciation is
strongly influenced by the native language, second language phonology has
only become a recognized area of study during the last thirty years. While
English has been the most frequent target language involved, the learners'
L1s have varied greatly. This is the first collection to gather together
studies involving English learners whose L1 is Spanish or Brazilian
Portuguese, two closely-related languages with important phonological
differences. The research covers vowel perception and production, syllable
simplification strategies, word and compound stress, and vowel reduction. 

While the papers confirm the important role of the native language, they
also shed light on the sometimes subtle and unexpected ways in which this
variable interacts with universal markedness relationships to determine the
formation of phonetic categories and their use in perception and
production. These eleven carefully conducted empirical studies will provide
insights for practitioners and stimulate further research.
