[This monograph tests for a substantive bias, the proposed universal implicational nasalized segment hierarchy in vowel–consonant nasal harmony, using an artificial grammar paradigm.]
[In this chapter, I introduce the typology of vowel-consonant nasal harmony to show what patterns look like in real languages, supporting the nasalized segment hierarchy introduced in Chap. 1. I briefly address two important factors in nasal harmony, opacity and transparency, and then introduce...
[This chapter introduces the literature on artificial grammar that forms the foundation for this study.]
[In this chapter, I address two major questions. First is whether a pattern that is predicted by this implicational universal is easier to learn than one that is not. The second question concerns how to determine which grammar is learned better.]
[The primary goal of this chapter is to better test the interactive approach—sonority hierarchy type and sonority natural classes and the approach of pure sonority natural classes proposed in Chap. 4 (see Sect. 4.14).]
[In conclusion, this monograph contributes to three important issues in artificial grammar learning. First, phonological studies using an artificial grammar paradigm are an area of increasing research interest. However, testing is most often done with English speakers in this kind of research....
