The aim of this project is to examine the ways in which perception and production of Arabic pronunciation among native English speakers learning Arabic are related to one another. Over the course of acquiring a second language, there is a point at which the learner becomes able to accurately hear the difference between Arabic pronounced by a native speaker and that produced by a learner. This point, however, may not be the same as the point at which the learner himself can produce native-like Arabic. Through this research, I aim to determine when accurate native production and perception are each attained, if at all. I will also analyze the relationship between these two achievements in the process of second language acquisition.
