Abstract: This dataset contains tabular files with acoustic measurements for prevocalic and non-prevocalic laterals produced by n = 62 German learners of English and n = 26 native speakers of English (BrE and AmE). The German subjects are instructional-setting learners ranging from grade 5 (age: 11) to university. They are predominantly from northern Bavaria and represent a broad range of proficiency levels. Pronunciation ability was assessed with a foreign accent rating. The data were elicited with a word list and each subject produced n = 15 tokens (n = 10 in non-prevocalic position, n = 5 in prevocalic position). Measurements are reported for the first two formants (F1 and F2). See ReadMe file for more details. Related publication: Soenning, Lukas. 2020. Phonological variation in German Learner English.
