Perceptual Training on Lexical Stress Contrasts

Perceptual Training on Lexical Stress Contrasts: A Study with Taiwanese Learners of English as a Foreign Language

Learning to perceive non-native sound contrasts can be a formidable task, particularly when learners can't rely on cues from their native-language experience. A case in point is Mandarin-speaking EFL learners' perception of lexical stress. They can accurately identify the stress patterns of target words in sentences that have a falling intonation. However, they experience considerable difficulties when the target words are in questions, where the intonation is rising. Where most training studies use only stimuli produced in falling intonation, we implemented a perceptual training program to examine whether Mandarin-speaking EFL learners could learn to perceive English lexical stress in both falling intonation and rising intonation.
