ABSTRACT

This study aims to investigate the differences in phonetic realization of segments, especially consonants including consonant clusters, in English verb-noun conversion pairs between native speakers of English and Korean English learners. This study found that native speakers of English had a tendency to produce segments in the stressed syllable considerably longer than the ones in the unstressed syllable. In contrast,Korean English learners did not make segments in the stressed syllable as long as native speakers of English in a consistent way. These results provide useful information for English learners in terms of the relation between English stress pattern and segmental duration. Furthermore, it turned out that in utterances of Korean English learners, vowel epenthesis occurred between /k/ and liquids but not between /s/ and stops.
