Examining The Temporal Structure Of The Perception-Production Link In Sla: A Longitudinal Study, Charles Nagle
World Languages and Cultures Publications
Most studies on the perception-production link have assumed a synchronous relationship, according to which gains in perception transfer to production rapidly and efficiently. However, time-lagged and asymptotic relationships are also possible, in which case perception would guide production at a later stage or production would improve only once perception has reached a high level of accuracy. The present study investigates the temporal dynamics of the perception-production link by modeling English speakers’ ability to perceive and produce L2 Spanish stops over time. Mixed-effects modeling of the d’ perception and voice onset time (VOT) production data demonstrated significant development in both areas ...
