Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 334-341 str.Subject(s): 6.03 | foreign accent, vowels, perceptive test, acoustic analysis engOnline resources: Elektronička verzija In: Speech and Language 2017 - 6th International Conference on Fundamental and Applied Aspects of Speech and Language str. 334-341Summary: Foreign language speakers are often recognized as „foreign― on the basis of rhythm and intonation of their speech and only later by more or less inadequate phonology, vocabulary or syntax. Vowels play important role in both rhythm and intonation and therefore their role and characteristics are of great importance in foreign language learning. In this paper, changes in vowel systems in adult foreign language learners were compared on initial and advanced level of learning and for that purpose native Polish speakers studying Croatian as foreign language were recorded. The obtained material was used for measuring F1, F2 and F3 of Croatian vowels in foreign speaker as well as for comparison with F1, F2 and F3 of their native Croatian peers to obtain information on interphonology. Furthermore, a perceptive test was performed to establish whether the differences between native and foreign speakers, as well as between initial and advanced levels of knowledge of foreign learners, can be perceived. Differences in values of F1, F2 and F3 were obtained for all vowels for both groups of Polish speakers. The results for F1, F2 and F3 in Polish speakers were compared with those obtained for their native Croatian peers but also with results of some previous studies. Results of the perceptive test showed clear distinction between foreign and native speaker but not as much between the two groups of foreign learners
