Russian is known as a true voice language with pre-voicing of voiced stops and no aspiration. It has been noted in many linguistic studies that the native language plays an important role in second language acquisition. There is a study which shows that people continue using their L1 processing strategies of linguistic information to communicate in their second language (Culter and Norris, 1988; Koda, 1997). In this research, we are interested in seeing whether or not Russian speakers prevoice voiced stops when speaking English.
