abstract
This study was done to determine the articulatory differences among American-English and Mexican- Spanish speakers. The project offered a better understanding of how motor behavior can change for the language that is being produced, and how the production of a language can be influenced by how it is perceived. Sixteen participants were involved: eight monolingual, American-English speaking adults and eight bilingual Mexican-Spanish speaking adults. All participants produced speech samples which were recorded and analyzed to determine motor behavior differences. Results showed significant articulatory differences among the two groups. Bilingual, Mexican-Spanish speakers produced shorter sounds with shorter duration measures while monolingual, American-English speakers used longer gestures with longer duration measures. When analyzing the data, it was found that the perception of the language the participant heard greatly influenced how the speaker produced the language. Motor behaviors did change across speakers, and the perception of a language influenced the production.
