FIG. 1.

Percent Parisian French vowels accurately produced by native speakers of American English. Accuracy of production of Parisian French vowels in bilabial /rabVpa/ context (above) and alveolar /radVta/ context (below) by native (female and male) speakers of American English with no (NoExp), formal (ModExp), and formal-plus-immersion (HiExp) French language experience, as determined by native PF listener judgments

FIG. 2.

Acoustic analysis of second-language and native Parisian French vowels. PF /i, y, u, œ, a/ produced by native speakers of American English with no (NoExp), formal (ModExp), and formal-plus-immersion (HiExp) French language experience, and by native Parisian French (PF) speakers, in bilabial /rabVpa/ context (a) and alveolar /radVta/ context (b), summarized over speakers. Symbols represent mean first formant/second formant values by all speakers in each speaker group and are surrounded by ellipses representing all subjects’ productions within each group.

FIG. 3.

Perception-production relationship. Correlation between AE listeners’ perception (cross-language assimilation overlap) and production (repetition) for PF /y-u/ (top), /œ-u/ (middle), and /y-u/ (bottom). American English with no (NoExp) are represented by circles, formal (ModExp) by squares, and formal-plus-immersion French language experience (HiExp) by triangles

TABLE I.

Native Parisian French (PF) speakers’ identification and goodness ratings of PF /i, y, u, œ, a/ in bilabial and alveolar contexts produced by AE talkers with no French experience (NoExp), classroom experience (ModExp) and formal-plus-immersion (HiExp). Boxes indicate target vowels that were perceived primarily as a non-target vowel.
