Morphophonemic Variation of Clusters in Japanese English.
Saunders, Neville J.
Language Learning, v37 n2 p247-72 Jun 1987
Examines the word-final, voiceless, stop-sibilant clusters formed by the attachment of -z morphemes to verbs and nouns in the speech production of Japanese learners of English. Reduction is the favored production strategy, but epenthesis is also used. Noun attachments are subject to less error than are verb attachments. (Author/LMO)
