Subject: Summary: Liaison acquisition in French



Dear Listers

A few weeks back I posted a query regarding studies on the acquisition
of Liaison in French by L2 learners (Linguist 14.1769). I would like
to thank the following people who sent me references and suggestions
for sources.

Manuel Sinor
Jeffrey Steele
Marie-Helene Cote (apologies for lost accents)
Stefan Schaden
Joaquim Brandao de Carvalho
And Shallion, I'm afraid I cannot glean the first name from the message.
The latter sent the details of a very good website on acquisition of 
French in general, 
http://www.yorku.ca/rmougeon/syllabusfren5614.htm#Bibliographie
Manuel sent information on a psycholinguistic perspective on word 
boundaries in French, of which the following was the easiest to get hold 
of here in New Zealand.

Dejean de la B�tie, B., & Bradley, D. (1995). Resolving word
boundaries in spoken French: Native and non-native strategies. Journal
of Applied Psycholinguistics, 16, 59-81.

Both Marie-Helene and Jeffrey recommended the following thesis,
Mastromonaco, Silvana-Maria (2000) Liaison in French as a second 
language, Ph.D. dissertation, University of Toronto.

Stefan gave the following reference for (mainly) German L1 acquisition 
of French phonology.
Ternes, Elmar, 1976: Probleme der kontrastiven Phonetik. Hamburg: Buske 
Verlag (Forum Phoneticum 13).

Once again, I would like to thank these contributors for their help.

Best regards,
