On the limits of L1 influence on non-L1 listening: Evidence from Japanese perception of Korean. In P. Warren, & C. I. Watson (Eds.

Language-specific procedures which are efficient for listening to the L1 may
be applied to non-native spoken input, often to the detriment of successful
listening. However, such misapplications of L1-based listening do not always
happen. We propose, based on the results from two experiments in which
Japanese listeners detected target sequences in spoken Korean, that an L1
procedure is only triggered if requisite L1 features are present in the input.
