L'interface oral-écrit dans l'apprentissage d'une langue étrangère : influence de l'input orthographique sur les représentations phonologiques : le cas des apprenants marocains

Abstract : Numerous studies have shown that orthography impacts speech perception and production processes. However, the influence of orthography is not taken into consideration in speech perception models, nor in speech production models. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of orthography on L2 spoken production. We will compare written production tasks to spoken production tasks. We assumed that the orthographic representations activated during written production allow phonological representations to be modified, thereby leading to a more accurate pronunciation. We tested this hypothesis on 100 Moroccan beginning learners of French, using a pretest posttest design. Stimuli were split in four categories, containing four target vowels (/ɔ̃/, /ɑ̃/, /i/, /e/) in final word position. Participants were divided in 5 groups, each performing an experimental condition training: (1) repetition of minimal pairs, (2) word repetition with verbotonal method of phonetic correction, (3) vocalized copy, (4) dictation, and (5) copy. Participants completed a word repetition task in pretest and posttest. We analyzed the effect of the experimental condition on the pronunciation accuracy in the posttest and training tasks. Results confirmed our hypothesis: pronunciation accuracy is significantly better in posttest after written production training. Moreover, results indicate that the copy task improved the posttest pronunciation accuracy the most. Our study supports the fundamental role of orthography on second language phonology.
