ABSTRACT

This study analyses the accent nucleus of loanwords included in NHK Japaness Pronunciation Accent Dictionary (1985, 1998) and Shin-Meikai Japanese Pronunciation Accent Dictionary (2001, 2014). The loanwords were extracted from the JLPT vocabulary list in accordance with each level, surveyed their accent nucleuses with respect to the aforementioned dictionaries, and examined them in terms of mora. In this research, the accent nucleus of the loanwords were studied and handled in Suzuki (2016) by consulting NHK Japanese Pronunciation Accent Dictionary (2016) and present a contrastive analysis of accent-nucleus patterns found in Korean women in their twenties from the province of Chungcheongdo, an accentless area. According to Lee (2016), the factors affecting the perception rates of “katakana”-words for Korean learners of Japanese are: (i) perception of special mora, especially the pronunciation of a word-final long vowel, (ii) lack of the perception of double consonants and insertion of double consonants, (iii) unvoicing of vowels, (iv) native-language transfer, (v) length of mora, (vi) perception of segments such as /tei/, /ɸa/, and /ɸo/, and so on. The present work confirms that these factors are indeed at work.
