    Vowel epenthesis of /sC(C)/ onsets in Spanish/Swedish inter­phonology: A longitudinal case study1999In: Language learning, ISSN 0023-8333, E-ISSN 1467-9922, Vol. 49, no 3, 473-508 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies showed that vowel epenthesis of initial /sC(C)/ clusters in the L2 production of L1 Spanish speakers is conditioned by several variable constraints, such as preceding environment, onset length, and sonority relations among onset members. This case study was designed to investigate whether the patterns obtained from elicited speech also hold for conversational data. A longitudinal corpus of spontaneous/natural speech from 1 adult L1 Spanish learner of L2 Swedish was used. The study confirmed most of the results from previous research, for example, that the frequency of epenthesis varies with preceding phonetic environment. However, the study suggested that a lowering effect of preceding vowels must be present, not just the enhancing effect of preceding consonants suggested by Carlisle (1997).

    Effects of Target-Word Frequency Rate on Sound-Meaning-Connection in Five to Fifteen Month-Old Swedish Infants1999Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of manipulating target-word frequency rate and target-word phrase position on sound-meaning-connection in five to fifteen month old Swedish infants. Three different test conditions, each one of them a film showing objects and corresponding phrases made of randomly generated artificial words, were designed. The structure of the first, high variability test condition included context-dependent information and the structures of the second and the third, low variability test conditions were characterised by frequent nonsense target-word rate, target-words occurring in phrase final position. The aim of the artificial input language was to ensure the novelty of test material, and to simulate the type of learning situation - when the semantic content of words is arbitrary - facing young infants in the beginning of language learning. Analysis of informants looking behaviour, prior to, and after exposure to the objects and the corresponding audio input, were performed. Results showed that the structure of high variability test condition and the structure of low variability test conditions were associated with significant between-group differences. This finding indicates that the nonsense phrases in low variability test conditions managed to 'explain' the objects just like semantically meaningful phrases do. When compared with past research, these findings seem to suggest that experience-dependent mechanisms may support, besides word segmentation, even more complicated aspects of language learning, such as acquisition of syntax.

    Web based activities and SLA: a conversation analysis approach1999In: Language Learning and Technology Journal, ISSN ISSN 1094-3501, Vol. 3, no 1, 75-87 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Different Internet technologies foster the acquisition of different language skills. In the case of synchronous interaction tools, such as Webchat, the concern is to evaluate whether and how this communication context affects the process of acquiring a second langauge. A collection of Webchat interaction data among English non-native speakers (NNS) and native speakers (NS) is the basis for a microanalytic investigation conducted form a Conversation Analysis (CA) perspective. The main purpose is to discover patterns and conversational strategies used by participatns in this on-line context.

    A CA research approach was chosen since it investigates the machinery and the structure of social action in language, avoiding preformulated theoretic categories. This is important since CMC represents a new SLA context, forcing both NS and NNS to produce different structures and strategies. The study analyzes, in particular, whether Webchat implies a reduction of the range in interactional practices, actions performance, sense making, and meaning negotiation, thus affecting the SLA process. Finally, the researcher considers the reliability and validity of this type of qualitative research in this new technological area.

    Using some research methodologies taken from CA literature, an analysis of the data focuses first on the overall structure of interaction and sequence organization in connection with the on-line communicaiton setting features. It then passes to turn-taking organization, with attention to recurrent structures and patterns as in openings and closings; turn design (or packaging of actions); expression of parlinguistic features in this on-line context; and some (interlanguage) pragmatic variables. The conclusion resolves the findings and underlines NNS versus NS behaviour, offering hypotheses about SLA through Webchat and synchronous CMC in general, encouraging further investigation.

    Coarticulatory effects of consonants on vowels and their reflection in perception1999In: Proceedings from the XIIth Swedish Phonetics Conference, 1999, 141-144 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The coarticulatory effects of consonants on vowels may be restricted by the need to keep vowel phonemes distinct. Such restrictions are minimal for the schwa-like vowels in the NW-Caucasian languages and in Northern Chinese, which is shown to display a wide range of such effects. Co-occurrence restrictions and preferences motivated by coarticulatoy ease exist in many languages. Consonant confusions observed in CV- and VC-syllables under various forms of distortion are discussed in order to see the perceptual effects of coarticulation. It is found that listeners tend to ascribe to the consonant some of the properties of the vowel when the consonantal segment is impoverished in information. Such perceptual "reattribution" is likely to be quite important for the perception of spontaneous speech. It is observed that reattribution may also be based on other factors, in addition to coarticulation.

    Distinctive names for speech sounds and letters obtained with hyper-coarticulated vowels1999In: Proceedings of the XIVth ICPhS, San Francisco, 1999, 1125-1128 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The names used in most languages for the letters of the Latin alphabet and for the sounds these represent are marked by a lack of distinctiveness that often makes them fail their purpose. Various auxiliary "spelling alphabets" are used in such cases. No such need arises with the letter names that are used for the Arabic, Hebrew, Armenian and Greek alphabets. Short and yet distinctive names for consonants can, however, be coined with a minimum of arbitrariness by exploiting the coarticulatory effects of consonants on vowels. These are analyzed for schwa-like vowels in the permissive vowel systems of NW-Caucasian and Mandarin Chinese, and it is shown how they can be utilized to coin names for phones and letters, especially for Turkish.
