Abstract
As has been noted by Tarone (1978. 1980) in discussions of the second language acquisition (SLA) literature on interlanguage phonology. although contrastive phonological analyses of English and various other languages are readily available. Few researchers have taken on the task of systematically analyzing performance data from learners' interlanguages to test the predictions made by these contrastive analyses. Tarone has argued for the accumulation of a large cross-linguistic data base as well as for the systematic analysis of various aspects of IL beyond a simple description of phonemic inventories of native and target languages. The present study is motivated by the same interest in providing empirical evidence for theoretical claims about the processes that shape interlanguage phonology.
