Title: Language Experience in Second Language Speech Learning
Subtitle: In honor of James Emil Flege
Edited By: Ocke-Schwen Bohn
Murray J. Munro
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26LT%2017
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 17
Description:

This stimulating collection of articles from leading international
researchers provides a state-of-the-art overview of core issues in second
language speech perception and production. Aimed at phoneticians, speech
scientists, psycholinguists, applied linguists, and pedagogical
specialists, it presents engaging discussions of fundamental problems and
controversies within the field, as well as new empirical findings arising
from a variety of methodological approaches. Its twenty chapters, inspired
by the ground-breaking work of James E. Flege, address such topics as the
theoretical underpinnings of second language speech learning; the nature
and etiology of foreign accents; the effects of age, experience, and
training; speech intelligibility; and the acquisition of vowels,
consonants, tone, and prosody. This volume will serve as a valuable
resource, not only for researchers, but for anyone wishing to gain an
understanding of an area of linguistics that is rapidly growing in importance.
