- The American linguist Larry Selinker proposed the concept of interlanguage in 1972, after which scholars have conducted extensive research on the pronunciation, vocabulary, syntax, discourse and pragmatics of interlanguage from different perspectives. This paper analyzes the result of a phonetic test for English majors of Chinese students according to conceptual integration theory in cognitive linguistics, aiming to find out the characteristics of phonetic fossilization in Chinese learners and its cognitive mechanism. Finally, the paper tries to propose the strategies to accelerate the transformation of phonetic fossilization.
