Rhythmic contrast between Swedish and Albanian as an explanation for L2-speech?

Tronnier, Mechtild LU and Zetterholm, Elisabeth LU (2015) International Symposium on Monolingual and Bilingual Speech 2015 (ISMBS 2015) In Proceedings of the International Symposium on Monolingual and Bilingual Speech 2015 p.396-402
Abstract
Based on observations of the rhythmic structure of L2-speech produced by L1-speakers of Albanian – which suggest the occurrence of transfer – a study is presented here that compares durational aspects between the two languages. In order to do this, speech read by Swedish and Albanian L1-speakers was recorded and investigated, and normalized durational factors were analysed. The results, however, do not support the assumption that there is variation in the rhythmic structure between the two languages. According to the results, transfer cannot explain previous observations.
