[ʃ]-[s] Accommodation in European Portuguese: An Acoustic and Perceptual Study

Amalia Andrade

Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

The present paper presents the results of an acoustic and perceptual study of [ʃ]-[s] accommodation in a European Portuguese (EP) dialect, based on intra-word material. It shows that stress plays an important conditioning role and offers some evidence in support of the idea that perceptual effects may contribute towards a reinforcement of the ongoing change.
