Recent phonetic studies showed that Korean has segment-tone interactions. For instance, if word-initial consonant types are aspirated or tense, the word almost always begins with a High tone (e.g., [t(h)ai] ``mask`` and [t*al] ``daughter``), otherwise, the word begins with a Low tone (e.g., [tal] ``moon`` and [mal] ``horse``). This paper examines whether L2 (English) production is influenced by the consonant-tone interaction occurring L1 (Korean) production. The English pitch contours of the native speakers and Korean speakers were compared for the identification of their differences. Results show that Korean speakers of English have a strong consonant-tone transfer when they produce English words and sentences.
