How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Dutch and German employ voicing contrasts, but Dutch lacks the ‘voiced’ dorsal plosive /ɡ/. We exploited this accidental phonological gap, measuring the presence of prevoicing and voice onset time durations during speech production to determine (1) whether preliterate bilingual Dutch–German and monolingual Dutch-speaking children aged 3;6–6;0 years...

Orthography plays a crucial role in L2 learning, which generally relies on both oral and written input. We examine whether incongruencies between L1 and L2 grapheme-phoneme correspondences influence bilingual speech perception and production, even when both languages have been acquired in early childhood before reading acquisition. Spanish–Basque a...
Preprint
Purpose In languages with alphabetical writing systems, the relationship between phonology and orthography is strong. Phonology-to-orthography mappings can be consistent (i.e., one phonological unit corresponds to one orthographic unit) or inconsistent (i.e., one phonological unit corresponds to multiple orthographic units). This study investigates...

Orthography is omnipresent in instructed L2 learning, and an increasing research pool investigates its effect on speech production and perception [1]. While orthography has facilitative effects on word learning and phonological accuracy [2], it may be detrimental on phonetic aspects of speech production and perception [3-4]. In classroom environmen...
Article
Full-text available
Bilingual children are often exposed to non-native speech through their parents. Yet, little is known about the relation between bilingual preschoolers’ speech production and their speech input. The present study investigated the production of voice onset time (VOT) by Dutch-German bilingual preschoolers and their sequential bilingual mothers. The...

Full-text available
This study assesses the effects of age and language exposure on VOT production in 29 simultaneous bilingual children aged 3;7 to 5;11 who speak German as a heritage language in the Netherlands. Dutch and German have a binary voicing contrast, but the contrast is implemented with different VOT values in the two languages. The results suggest that bi...
Article
Full-text available
Speech of late bilinguals has frequently been described in terms of cross-linguistic influence (CLI) from the native language (L1) to the second language (L2), but CLI from the L2 to the L1 has received relatively little attention. This article addresses L2 attainment and L1 attrition in voicing systems through measures of voice onset time (VOT) in...

This study investigates the adult grammars of French simultaneous bilingual speakers (2LIs) whose other language is German. Apart from providing an example of French as heritage language in Europe, the goals of this paper are (i) to compare the acquisition of French in a minority and majority language context, (ii) to identify the relative vulnerab...
Article
Full-text available
This paper is concerned with gender marking in adult French. Four groups of subjects are compared: German-French simultaneous bilinguals (2L1ers) who grew up in France, German-French 2L1ers who grew up in Germany, advanced second language learners (L2ers) who are resident either in France or in Germany at the time of testing. The major goal of the...

Project
Bilingualism and reading may mutually influence each other, but they have been studied separately. The EU-funded LIPPS project will explore the two together, bearing in mind the intricate interactions between auditory and visual language perception and production in bilingual populations. The aim is to demonstrate that the matching of a grapheme to a phoneme and vice versa reshapes bilinguals’ speech sound representations. This effect has direct consequences for speech production and perception. LIPPS will investigate how literacy adjusts representations of speech sounds in both languages of bilinguals. It will have major implications for models of bilinguals’ language production and perception, as well as for education and social policies.
Project
This project focuses on the phonetic implementation of the voicing contrast by children (3;6 to 6;0 years) who acquired Dutch and German simultaneously in the Netherlands. The project investigates children's production, perception, and the speech of their parents in L1 and L2.
