The Representation and Processing of Tone in Mandarin Chinese: Evidence from Slips of the Tongue.
Chen, Jenn-Yeu
Applied Psycholinguistics, v20 n2 p289-301 Jun 1999
Examined through slips of the tongue how tones are represented and processed when speaking Mandarin Chinese. With regard to sound movement errors, it was found that, although errors of segmental phonemes were fairly common, errors of tones were rare. Suggests that lexical tones in Mandarin Chinese are represented and processed differently from segmental sounds but similarly to lexical stress in English. (Author/VWL)
