The beginning stages of speech segmentation in a second language (L2) have received little attention to date. The literature on L2 phonological acquisition tends to focus on learner populations who have access to discrete (orthographic) forms through exposure to the L2 in a classroom setting.… read more
Vihman, Marilyn and Sophie Wauquier 2018 Chapter 1. Templates in child languageSources of Variation in First Language Acquisition: Languages, contexts, and learners, Hickmann, Maya †, Edy Veneziano and Harriet Jisa (eds.), pp. 27–44 | Chapter
To what extent do developmental templates, or idiosyncratic child word patterns, reflect (i) universal tendencies of neurophysiologically grounded production, (ii) perceptually-based guidance due to the frequency of occurrence in input speech or to the rhythmic patterning of the adult language, or… read more
Wauquier, Sophie 2014 Templates and representations in phonology: from Semitic to child languageThe Form of Structure, the Structure of Form: Essays in honor of Jean Lowenstamm, Bendjaballah, Sabrina, Noam Faust, Mohamed Lahrouchi and Nicola Lampitelli (eds.), pp. 219–234 | Article
Studies in the acquisition of phonology which support a “templatic hypothesis” for non-Semitic languages raise the very exciting theoretical question of continuity vs. discontinuity between children’s and adults’ grammars. This paper addresses the relevance of an autosegmental templatic model in… read more
This article presents an overview of empirical findings to date concerning the acquisition of liaison in French as a first and second language (L1 and L2, respectively). We present data culled from production studies as well as from psycholinguistic experimentation involving various paradigms. Our… read more
Nguyen, Noël, Sophie Wauquier, Leonardo Lancia and Betty Tuller 2007 Detection of liaison consonants in speech processing in French: Experimental data and theoretical implicationsSegmental and prosodic issues in Romance phonology, Prieto, Pilar, Joan Mascaró and Maria-Josep Solé (eds.), pp. 3–23 | Article
The goal of the present study is to better understand the mechanisms involved in the processing of liaison consonants by listeners in French. Previous work (Wauquier-Gravelines 1996) showed that liaison consonants are more difficult to detect than word-initial consonants in a phoneme-detection task. read more
