Abstract This research aims at examining the perception of accentual groups in French by French-speaking listeners and by Spanish/Catalan-speaking learners of French. The material was composed of French five-syllable sequences produced by native speakers of French and by Spanish/Catalan-speaking learners of French. The sequences were produced in the assertive and interrogative modalities. Moreover, a delexicalized version of the sequences was created. Participants listened to each sequence and had to decide whether it was composed of 1 or 2 groups. Results show that the listeners were more likely to perceive 2 groups when 1) the sequences were produced by learners of French, 2) the sequences were presented in the delexicalized version, and 3) the sequences’ speech rate decreased.
