Abstract: Abstract "The Processing and Representation of Lexical Stress in the Short-term Memory of Cantonese-English Successive Bilinguals" submitted by Chan Ming Kei Kevin for the Degree of Master of Arts at the University of Hong Kong in June 2005 Previous research has shown that monolingual speakers of some European languages, namely French, Finnish, and Hungarian in which stress is not used to distinguish lexical items, have problems in processing lexical stress and these groups of speakers were said to be "deaf" to stress (Dupoux et al., 2001; Peperkamp & Dupoux, 2002). This processing deficit was explained in terms of the lack of phonological representation of lexical stress among these speakers. Using the same short-term memory sequence repetition paradigm as in these studies, Cantonese-English successive bilinguals in Hong Kong were found to have no deficit in processing lexical stress and their performance was highly comparable to that of the native English controls. Results were discussed in terms of the possibilities of having a genuine lexical stress representation and using tonal representation to approach lexical stress in short-term memory of the Cantonese-English bilinguals. Further studies were suggested to test these proposals. ii DOI: 10.5353/th_b3486076 Subjects: Accents and accentuationShort-term memoryBilingualismPsycholinguistics
