A system for adaptive high-variability segmental perceptual training: implementation, effectiveness, transfer
Language Learning & Technology 22(1), 69-96, DOI:10125/44582
This paper introduces the first version of Linguatorium Auris, a system for segmental perceptual training that utilizes corpus-based word frequency lists, high variability phonetic input, and text-to-speech technology to automatically create discrimination and identification perception exercises customized for individual learners. The effectiveness of this system is evaluated in an experiment with a pre-/post-test design involving 32 adult Russian-speaking learners of English as a foreign language (EFL).
