Language-experience facilitates discrimination of /d- / in monolingual and bilingual acquisition of English
Language experience facilitates perception of the English /d-th/ contrast and this facilitation occurs later in development when English and French are acquired simultaneously, having implications for language organization in children with simultaneous exposure. Expand
Production of coronal stops by simultaneous bilingual adults
This study investigated acoustic-phonetics of coronal stop production by adult simultaneous bilingual and monolingual speakers of Canadian English (CE) and Canadian French (CF). Differences in theExpand
The Vowel Systems of Quichua-Spanish Bilinguals

Phonetic evidence for early language differentiation: Research issues and some preliminary data
Although evidence is now available from several domains of language acquisition research that bilingual(BFLA) children differentiate their languages from the time of their earliest productions,Expand
The Dispersion-Focalization Theory of vowel systems
The Dispersion-Focalization Theory (DFT) attempts to predict vowel systems based on the minimization of an energy function summing two perceptual components : global dispersion , which is based onExpand
