Modern Standard Hebrew (Semitic)
The Hebrew simulation has its own section in the paper. The learner finds [ts] but not other complex segments. The status of [tʃ] and [dʒ] in Hebrew is not entirely clear; Bolozky (1980) discusses some arguments in favor of treating these foreign affricates as clusters.
The Hebrew dataset is the Living Lexicon of Hebrew Nouns by Michael Becker and Shmuel Bolozky. The transcriptions are original, with the only change being that we replaced affricate symbols with cluster transcriptions.
