Voice-Onset-Time in the Perception of Foreign Accent by Native Listeners of Spanish.
Gonzalez-Bueno, Manuela
IRAL, v35 n4 p251-67 Nov 1997
A study found that, when temporal characteristics of stops in a Spanish utterance by a native English-speaker were computer-manipulated, native Spanish-speakers' perceptions of the foreignness of the speech were affected. Results imply that Spanish language instruction should include instruction to shorten stops to more Spanish-like values, perhaps through interactive computer techniques. (Author/MSE)
