Linguistic LingField(s):   Language Acquisition

Summary:   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,
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,
