A series of speech reading experiments were carried out to examine the ability to discriminate between Swedish and Finnish among L2 learners of Swedish and Spanish as their mother tongue. This group was compared with native speakers of Swedish and a group with no knowledge in Swedish or Finnish. The results showed tendencies, that familiarity with Swedish increased the discrimination ability between Swedish and Finnish.
