I am interested in speech production and perception and second language acquisition of Korean Learners of English. I am currently investigating individual differences in vowel epenthesis among Korean Learners of English. The aims of the research are to investigate individual differences in vowel epenthesis among Korean Learners of English by training English learners to improve the production and perception ability. The first study investigated individual differences in vowel epenthesis among Korean L2 speakers of English, and its relationship to other measures of segmental and suprasegmental processing. The second study investigated whether training vowel identification and stress pattern recognition ability will affect to vowel epenthesis.
