Much attention has been paid to the production and perception of phonological contrasts at the segmental and suprasegmental level in a second language. In recent years, these investigations have been extended to the production and perception of non-native regional varieties within the speaker's native language. One of the central issues addressed in these studies is to what extent the way in which we categorize non-native speech sounds has an impact on spoken word recognition processes, such as lexical activation and competition between similar sounding words, in that non-native language. This Research Topic aims to further our understanding of the processes involved in the perception and production of speech sounds in a non-native language as well as in non-native varieties of a native language. Both theoretical contributions and empirical studies using behavioral, computational and/or neurophysiological data, will be welcome.
