This study compares patterns of consonant-to-consonant timing at word boundaries in English and Russian and investigates the roles of transfer and the emergence of linguistic universals in second language (L2) articulation. Native Russian speakers learning English and native English speakers learning Russian produced phrases in English and Russian contrasting VC#CV, VC#V, and V#CV sequences. The duration of all stop closures was measured as well as the percentage of consonant sequences in which… 
Gradient and Categorical Effects in Native and Non-native Nasal-rhotic Coordination
Languages are known to differ in their patterns of consonant-to-consonant coordination. Acquisition of a second language (L2) therefore involves learning these language-specific coordination patterns
Interlanguage Analysis of Phonetic Timing Patterns by Taiwanese Learners
This study investigates the timing properties of English spoken by Taiwanese learners, which has been predicted as syllable-timed, and American English, which is usually assumed to be stress-timed.
Phonological transfer of voicing and devoicing rules: evidence from L1 Dutch and L2 English conversational speech
Abstract This paper examines the productivity of voicing and devoicing rules in Dutch–English interlanguage. In Dutch, but not in English, coda obstruents can be subject to final devoicing and
Articulatory timing of English consonant clusters in the coda positions: a study of Chinese-English interlanguage.

Durational correlates for differentiating consonant sequences in Russian
In Russian, the same consonant sequences are permitted in various phonotactic environments. The presence of a word boundary or reduced vowel can be phonologically contrastive, and both learners and
The representation and execution of articulatory timing in first and second language acquisition
TLDR
American English-speaking children and Korean-speaking adult learners of English repeatedly produced real English words in a simple carrier sentence to evaluate the realization of contrasts (representation) and to index speech motor abilities (execution).
Durational characteristics and timing patterns of Russian onset clusters at two speaking rates
TLDR
Results show, contrary to expectation, that both duration and timing of the consonants in a cluster are subject to change, and there was a less of a rate effect for clusters with falling sonority, pointing towards their lesser flexibility in timing.
Phonetic and Phonological Factors in the Second Language Production of Phonemes and Phonotactics
TLDR
Both phonetic and phonological aspects of L2 production are considered in light of data from learners at all stages of language acquisition, from cross-language speech production studies which may reflect the initial state of language learning to proficient L2 speakers.
The modification of English /s/+ consonant onset clusters by Levant Arabic speakers
This thesis investigates the production of English word initial /s/+ consonant clusters (sC) in the speech of eleven adult native Levant Arabic speakers (LAs). In particular, the study investigates
Release Bursts in English Word-Final Voiceless Stops Produced by Native English and Korean Adults and Children
TLDR
The results suggested that noncontrastive (i.e., statistical) properties of an L2 can be learned by children, and to a somewhat lesser extent by adults.

TLDR
It is concluded that phonetic constraints must come from phonological both in containing quantitative information and in being evaluated through weighting rather than strict dominance.
Some phonetic and syntactic constraints on lingual coarticulation during /kl/ sequences
TLDR
Major syntactic boundaries seemed to have little effect on the degree of co-articulation except in the slow rate of utterance, where for three of the four subjects the onset of the anterior movement for /l/ was consistently delayed.
Is a stop consonant released when followed by another stop consonant
Phoneticians have generally claimed that, in sequences of two‐stop consonants in English, the first stop is often unreleased. To examine this claim, we recorded sentences, produced by several native
Theoretical Implications of an Error Analysis of Second Language Phonology Production.
An error analysis approach is used to investigate the second language (English) phonology of two native speakers of Hungarian. The study provides evidence relevant to a number of issues in second
Effects of temporal correction on intelligibility of foreign-accented English
TLDR
It is suggested that intelligibility of foreign-language speakers may be enhanced if explicit training is provided on temporal properties of their speech.
Acoustic and perceptual evidence for complete neutralization of manner of articulation in Korean
Abstract While most studies of neutralization have focused on word-final devoicing, the present study investigated a different kind of neutralization, namely that of manner of articulation. Korean

TLDR
Results from a study of the acquisition of the voicing contrast in English word-final obstruents by native speakers of Catalan indicate a very high incidence of devoicing, which confirms the prevalence of final devoices in second language acquisition and points to the joint effect of transfer and universal tendencies.
Acoustic evidence for gestural overlap in consonant sequences
Acoustic evidence for temporal overlap of the two closure gestures in the environment VC ≠ CV was investigated. It was hypothesized that evidence of C2 would be found in the VC formant transitions
Influences on articulatory timing in consonant sequences
TLDR
Findings support the claim that inter-gestural coordination is variable and affected by linguistic factors-both gestural and prosodic.
