- Résumé : This study investigates how French listeners exploit phonological and phonetic cues in segmenting continuous speech into words. We examined how these listeners integrate multiple sources of information not only in lexical identification, using the word spotting task, but also in the storage of new lexical representations, using an artificial language learning task. Results showed that the specific segmentation cues examined had different weights in these two tasks. Syllable onsets, simultaneously cued by allophonic variations and phonotactics, played a predominant role in lexical identification while stress was a “last-resort” segmentation cue. In contrast, rhythmic information, particularly primary stress, played a greater role in lexical acquisition while syllable onsets were not used as segmentation cues. These results suggest that caution is required in relating results on lexical acquisition and lexical identification.
