- This study explored the possible influence of orthography and inner speech in the loanword adaptations through the on-line adaptations experiment with the vowel epenthesis after English word-final stops in Korean. The experiment is conducted to find the effect of the borrowing language orthography and its possible transference to similar non-words by the analogy, and the task difference between overt speech and inner speech. The result showed that the orthography of the borrowing language was influential on the loanword adaptations, but this orthographic representation was not large enough to be transferred to the similar nonce words by analogy. This result did not vary in the task differences.
