Résumé :

It is often said that young infants are able to discriminate any phonological contrast from any language, and that they lose sensitivity to non-native contrasts during the first year of life as they narrow in on those distinctions that are important in their native language(s). In fact, some non-native contrasts are discriminated very well by older infants, as my own data will show. I will argue that infants transition from untuned phonetic perception to natively tuned perception over the first year of life, which may help or hinder discrimination of unfamiliar non-native contrasts. The effect of the native language on non-native speech perception can also be observed in adulthood, ideally by comparing perception of the same non-native contrasts by people from different language backgrounds. I will present a study comparing the perceptual assimilation and discrimination of three consonant contrasts from a Native Canadian language, Nuu Chah Nulth, by participants from four different language groups. The results show differences in discrimination of the non-native contrasts that are clearly related to how the consonants are perceptually assimilated to the native phonological system.
