Production and perception of length contrast in lateral-final rimes

    Abstract

    Words containing /l/-final rimes challenge listeners as coda /l/ reduces certain vowel contrasts. Lateral-final rimes therefore allow us to gauge the link between individuals’ word recognition and production. We tested whether participants producing a larger durational contrast between word pairs containing the rimes /i:l-Il, 0:l-Ul, æOl-æl , @0l-Ol/ were better at recognising minimal pairs contrasting the aforementioned rimes. 46 Australian English speakers produced 24 /l/-final minimal pairs and identified the same minimal pairs spoken by two speakers. Participants producing a longer durational contrast took longer to respond and were only more accurate when the stimuli contained a bigger durational contrast.
