Abstract [en]

Adult second language learners often learn both written and spoken language more or less simultaneously. The orthography of the world’s languages is, however, not in a one-to-one relationship with the phonological and phonetic realisations of its words. Sometimes orthographic cues as a clue for learners can be found and taught. If not, the pronunciation of the word has to be learned from other cues than orthography. In Swedish, there is an important quantity distinction in stressed syllables, often signalled by single or double consonantal letters.

Minimal pairs with a quantity distinction shown in the orthography were used to study to what extent that might be a cue for second language learners when reading sentences in Swedish. We found a difference between speakers that can be correlated to the learner’s first language. Obvious relationships between orthographic and phonological quantity patterns make it easier to use orthography as a cue for quantity distinction and pronunciation
