Mimicry of Non-Distinctive Phonetic Differences between Language Varieties.
Flege, James Emil; Hammond, Robert M.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v5 n1 p1-17 Fall 1982
Using a delayed mimicry paradigm to assess speakers' awareness of nondistinctive phonetic differences which, in part, distinguish languages, the study provides tentative evidence that such differences are detectable by language learners and do not present an impossible barrier to phonetic learning in second-language acquisition.
