Abstract: This paper aims at mapping out the cross-linguistic perceptual differences of speech in different languages with respect to how speech in one language is perceived by normal hearing non-native adults learning that language. The goal is to examine and in the end, to point to the potential perceptual patterns of adult second-language learners so that computational tools for learning second languages which can help the learners in producing the correct sound patterns of the language in question by pointing out the finer points of variable auditory perception of the phonological patterns of the language, can be developed. For this purpose a sample of three Indian languages, Marathi, Telugu and Bengali has been taken. The ongoing behavioral experiments are aimed at carrying out an examination of similarities and differences in perception of speech acoustic signals across languages. The relevant issues on identifying the acoustic and auditory interpretation will be reported here.
