Producing, perceiving and imitating L2 speech: linguistic interactions and theoretical issues
2018, Vol. XXIII-1, pp. 5-14
This contribution introduces the most crucial findings of recent research in second language phonology, and then discusses the questions raised by thevarious contributions of this special issue. We focus on four main topics: (i) the role of speech perception in L2 phonology models and the L1 transfer, (ii) the perception of L2 prosodic phenomena, (iii) the effects of visual cues on the L2 pronunciation accuracy, and (iv) the linguistic interactions and the interfaces between phonology and the other modules of the L1/L2 grammar.
