Production and Perception of the Voicing Contrast in Indian and American English

Davis, Katherine

We measured VOT's of initial stops and tested stop identification in speakers of Indian English (Hind i
bilinguals) and American English.

Our measurements revealed significant inter- and intra-dialectal differences in distribution of VOT' s for the speakers, but only an interdialectal difference in identification patterns. Thus production of VOT can vary considerably within a general dialect group without affecting the uniformity of the group's perception norms.
