An Experimental Study of Spanish Learners’ Language Transference in Pronouncing Chinese Vowels
Keywords:vowel acquisition, vowel pattern, mother tongue transference, first foreign language transference.
Based on the vowel pattern, an experiment
is designed to summarize and compare the
Chinese vowel pattern articulated by Spanish
students whose first foreign language is English
and second foreign language is Chinese, and the
native Chinese speakers. The aim of this study is
to investigate the transference of mother
tongue and the first foreign language in the
learning of a second foreign language. It is
found that the mother tongue and the first
foreign language both have the impact on
transferring the vowel pronunciation to the
second foreign language. The conditions of
interference of mother tongue are relatively
stricter. Compared with the transference of
mother tongue, the transference condition of
the first foreign language is stricter. The
construction of vowel pattern in interlanguage
is in accordance with the internal law of
children’s acquisition of mother tongue.
