Abstract

The perception of American English epenthetic andunderlying stops (as in prin[t]ce∼prints) was examinedin a forced-choice identification experiment that con-trolled for word frequency and familiarity, closure du-ration and presence of burst. Previous production datahave shown durational differences between epentheticand underlying [t]. The present results support this gen-eralization, but only for familiar words: listeners appearmore sensitive to distinctions between short and longclosure durations, tending to categorize those with shortduration as “nce” words.
