Abstract: As part of a larger study that aims to address the complexity involved in second language acquisition (SLA) where multiple varieties are present (Leung in prep.), this paper focuses on the L2 English perception of children who have received a wide array of input from an early age. Specifically, this study looks at Hong Kong Chinese families that have employed Filipino domestic helpers and the acquisition of Filipino English (FE) segmental features by the children in these households. Results suggest that these children have built a perceptual knowledge vis-à-vis the target variety. This, however, begs the question of what influences learners' language choice when multiple varieties exist, an interesting area to pursue in the future.
