L1-referenced phonological processing in Japanese-English bilinguals
Previous research investigating second-language processing difficulties experienced by Japanese native speakers is consistent with the notion that these individuals are representing foreign words in terms of their native phonological structure at an abstract underlying level. This issue is illustrated here by an experiment that compared Japanese-English bilinguals and native English speakers on their immediate recall of English pseudo-words. Recall performance was dependent on the number of phonemes within list items for the monolingual participants, but on the number of morae for the Japanese bilinguals, indicating that they were indeed automatically activating “Japanized” abstract representations upon encountering the non-native constructions. It is particularly noteworthy that this appeared to be true regardless of the age at which the bilinguals had learnt English.
Keywords: L2 phonological processing, Japanese-English bilinguals, immediate serial recall, phonological representations
