Three listener groups (native Italian and German as well as advanced German learners of Italian) performed a speeded same–different task involving vocalic and consonantal length contrasts as well as segmental contrasts as controls. Phonologically, Italian, but not German, has a consonantal length contrast, while German, but not Italian, has a vocalic length contrast. Analysis of responses yielded a clear asymmetry: A non-native vowel length contrast was perceived just as well as the native consonantal length contrast. A non-native consonantal length contrast, however, was perceived poorly compared to the native vocalic length contrast: Italians showed higher sensitivity for consonantal length than German learners of Italian, who in turn were better than German non-learners. Reaction time analyses indicated that, despite displaying higher accuracy, the decision was just as difficult for learners as for non-learners, suggesting different types of difficulty for listeners with and without experience with a consonantal length contrast.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-11-15T09:53:35Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Asymmetries in the perception of non-native consonantal and vocalic length contrasts</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Altmann, Heidi</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dc:contributor>Braun, Bettina</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-11-15T09:53:35Z</dc:date> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Second Language Research ; 28 (2012), 4. - S. 387-413</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/20709"/> <dc:creator>Braun, Bettina</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
