Prosodic Cues to Semantic Structure in Native and Nonnative Listening.
Akker, Evelien; Cutler, Anne
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v6 n2 p81-96 Aug 2003
Examines whether listeners efficiently exploit sentence prosody to direct attention to words bearing sentence accent. Four studies are reported. Results suggest that less efficient mapping of prosody to semantics may be one way in which nonnative listening fails to equal native listening. (Author/VWL)
