Cantonese Speakers and the Acquisition of French Consonants.
Cichocki, W.; And Others
Language Learning, v43 n1 p43-68 Mar 1993
An error analysis based on phonetic transcription of French utterances by native speakers of Cantonese yielded a scale of difficulty for word-initial and word-final consonants. The Markedness Differential Hypothesis explained some errors. Evidence also pointed to interaction of language acquisition with markedness reversals. (35 references) (CNP)
