An Empirical Study of the Use of Mirror Repetition Technology as a Means of Phonetic Re-Printing (On the Example of Students With Visual Impairment)

The article speculates upon the problem of phonetic re-imprint forming through the acoustic mirroring technology application. The aim is to represent and analyse the results of the empirical study held as part of our scientific research and to consider the effectiveness of the acoustic mirroring technology application. Methodology. The study was carried out on the basis of theoretical and practical analysis within the framework of activity and system approaches. Results. The authors highlight the effectiveness of imitation and mirroring mechanisms. Theoretical basis of re-imprint pattern forming mechanism as well as the empirical study results are given in the research paper. Student t-criterion for linked samples was applied to calculate the acoustic mirroring technology effectiveness. Taking into account the research data we can say that the acoustic mirroring technology is more effective for post-sensitive period phonetics mastering compared with standard methods. Conclusion. The acoustic mirroring technology application effectiveness for re-imprint forming is proved and fortified through the empirical research and analysis. We do not deny the importance of standard phonetics mastering methods but we consider it to be less effective for the phonetic re-imprint forming then the acoustic mirroring technology.
