Cross-language speech perception in adults: first language transfer doesn't tell it all. Bohn, O. In Speech perception and linguistic experience: Theoretical and methodological issues in cross-language speech research, pages 275-300. York Press, Timonium, MD.
abstract   bibtex   
Even learners who do not make use of duration cues in their L1 my use this cue in the perception of L2 contrasts. Bohn hypothesises that it is a common strategy to use duration as a cue when spectral information is ambiguous. Alternative account: There were more spectral steps than duration steps, which means that the duration categories were more coarse.
