This study investigates Dutch listeners' perception of Korean stop triplets. Whereas Dutch distinguishes prevoiced and voiceless unaspirated stops, Korean distinguishes fortis, lenis, and aspirated stops. Here, perception of fortis, lenis, and aspirated bilabial (/pp/-/p/-/ph/), alveolar (/tt/-/t/-/th/), and velar (/kk/-/k/-/kh/) stops is investigated. In Dutch, VOT is the most important perceptual cue for initial stop voicing. Korean fortis stops fall within the VOT range of Dutch voiceless stops; VOTs of lenis and especially aspirated stops are longer than Dutch VOTs. Therefore, Dutch listeners were expected to distinguish fortis stops more accurately from the...
