An L2 Pronunciation Judgment Task
Adolfo Ausín and Megan Sutton
234-245 (complete paper or proceedings contents)

Abstract

This paper presents an attempt to measure the impact that a course on Spanish phonetics and pronunciation has on the ability of L2 speakers of Spanish to recognize good and bad pronunciations of Spanish. The subjects were asked to judge the acceptability of a series of spoken samples at the beginning and at the end of the semester. Results indicate that the subjects' ability to differentiate good and bad pronunciations of Spanish improved over time.
