Second Language Research, v19 n3 p251-66 Jul 2003
Investigated how learners' perception of second language segments is affected by their first language by examining native Korean and Japanese speakers' perception of nasal segments in English. Also examined the perceived relationship between English syllable-final nasals and Japanese categories to provide insight into why one of the contrasts was particularly difficult for the Japanese speakers.
