Hi All-

I've seen references to phoneme confusion matrices scattered throughout
the speech literature but can't seem to find any raw confusion data
anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get the raw phoneme confusion data
for the phonemes of English?

Message 2: Time and Gender

Subject: Time and Gender

Dear subscribers,

I am presently working on a project which addresses the effects of time on
the acquisition of grammatical gender and gender assignment strategies of
learners of German (all university levels). I have found a number of
articles which deal with the effects of time on foreign accent and one on
pronoun acquisition in Dutch but few longitudinal studies on the
acquisition of grammatical concepts and nothing which addresses German

If any reader could assist me with suggestions for any language (but
especially for L2 German), I would be very grateful.
