Title: How Stressful Is L2 Stress?
Subtitle: A cross-linguistic study of L2 perception and production of metrical systems
Series Title: LOT Dissertation Series
Published: 2009
Publisher: Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics / Landelijke - LOT

Author: Anna Kijak
Paperback: ISBN: 9789078328889 Pages: Price: ----

This dissertation addresses the second language (L2) acquisition of word
stress in production and perception, from both a phonological-theoretical
and psycholinguistic angle. It investigates how cross-linguistic
differences in the (types of) metrical systems of native speakers of a
variety of first (native) languages (L1) affect the L2 acquisition of word
stress. This includes the differences in the formal properties of L1 and L2
stress and the functional properties of L1 stress, and their implications
for the representation of stress in the mental lexicon established during
the L1 acquisition process. To this end, native speakers of several
languages were tested experimentally for their L2 perception and production
of Polish word stress. These languages were Russian, Czech, German, French,
English, Spanish, Italian and Chinese.

This thesis contributes to a better understanding of adult L2 acquisition
of stress, the relationship between L2 perception and production, and the
effects of L1 properties on the acquisition of L2 stress. As one of its
most important features, this dissertation addresses the complexity of the
(L2) stress perception process, suggesting that the function of L1 stress
(in terms of facilitating word recognition or word segmentation) should be
included in the properties affecting speakers' stress perception.

This dissertation will be of interest to those working in the area of
phonology, second language acquisition and psycholinguistics.
