An Instrumental Study of Vowel Reduction and Stress Placement in Spanish-Accented English.
Flege, James Emil; Bohn, Ocke-Schwen
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v11 n1 p35-62 Mar 1989
A study compared how native speakers of Spanish and English produced four English word pairs that are morphologically related but differ in stress and vowel quality. The magnitude of differences observed suggests that second language learners acquire stress placement and vowel reduction in English on a word-by-word basis. (Author/MSE)
