Message 2: Flege's Equivalence Classification

Subject: Flege's Equivalence Classification

I am currently doing research in phonological acquisition and am
particularly interested in FLege's Equivalence Classification. The
latest that I've found dates back to 1987 and appeared in the Journal
of Phonetics. Do you know of more recent studies?

Thank you for your kind consideration.
