All stimuli were comprised of nine phonemes with syllable stress recorded on the first, second, or third syllable by a speaker knowledgeable in phonetic transcription and trained to maintain a slow, natural rate of speech. Three independent raters perceptually evaluated all stimuli for accurate syllable stress and pronunciation prior to the experiment. All experimental stimuli (trained and untrained) are listed below with corresponding syllable stress position. All Trained stimuli are marked with first or second syllable stress position, the hypothesized motor class for this experiment. Untrained stimuli varied by motor class and phonetic similarity to the trained stimuli. Phonetic similarity was defined by the phonemes used and the phoneme order within a consonant-vowel (CV) unit within a given stimulus.
