Abstract:
This work explores development in the perception of Japanese singleton and geminate consonant contrasts among native speakers of English learning Japanese as a second language. The primary goal of this paper is to show that the second language (L2) acquisition of phoneme contrasts that are not present in the first language (L1) exhibits development that is predictable from the acoustic properties of the contrast. Additionally I attribute differences in the perception of particular singleton/geminate contrasts by both native speakers of Japanese and learners of Japanese as a result of acoustic properties of the contrasts.
