Abstract : The purpose of the study is to propose the effective method with which to teach Japanese intonation and accent. As a fundamental research for this purpose, I intend to report on the results of experimentation which was designed to test acquisitional influences by input and first language (L1) transfer in the process of learning Japanese accent and intonation by French and Japanese (Tokyo, Kyoto-Osaka) native speakers. The results indicates that: 1) French speakers apply the French prosodic rules to Japanese utterances. Consequently, French speakers can realize the intonative patterans for Japanese utterances which bear a close parallel to French intonative patterns. The accentual pattern of a Japanese phrase (bunsetsu) by French speakers changes whether it is focused or not. 2) The differences of the prosodic structures between Japanese and French are crucial factors in characterizing the surface intonative patterns of Japanese utterances by French speakers; while Japanese prosodic structure forms a hierarchy centering around the accent, the French prosodic structure forms a hierarchy centering around the intonation. 3) The L1 transfer of prosodic rules prevents French speakers from acquiring a Japanese accent. However, it is possible for them to acquire (1) the intonation of Japanese utterance, (2) the intonative pattern of Japanese accentual phrase, and (3) the japanese accent.
