Stuart-Smith, J. , Smith, R. , Rathcke, T., Li Santi, F. and Holmes, S. (2011) Responding to accents after experiencing interactive or mediated speech. In: ICPhS XVII, Hong Kong, 17-21 Aug 2011, pp. 1914-1917.




Very little known is about how speakers learn about and/or respond to speech experienced without the possibility for interaction. This paper reports an experiment which considers the effects of two kinds of exposure to speech (interactive or non-interactive mediated) on Scottish English speakers’ responses to another accent (Southern British English), for two processing tasks, phonological awareness and speech production. Only marginal group effects are found according to exposure type. The main findings show a difference between subjects according to exposure type before exposure, and individual shifts in responses to speech according to exposure type.
