The Word Unit in Second Language Speech Production and Perception.
Flege, James Emil; Munro, Murray J.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v16 n4 p381-411 Dec 1994
Studied the word as a unit in second-language speech acquisition. Spanish and English monolinguals' renditions of "taco" differed systematically. Bilinguals' accuracy in producing the various segments of a second-language word may be interrelated. In judging second-language speech, listeners respond to phonetic errors distributed over the entire word. (65 references) (Author/CK)
