The study is aimed to discuss the two notions of relationship between speech perception and production. These two notions are perception precedes production or vice-versa. The notion of perception precedes production proposes that production of a new sound must follow the success of perception of this sound (Polivanov, 1931). Whereas, the notion of production precedes perception proposes that there are certain situations, in which perception of a new sound must follow the success of production of this sound (Neufeld, 1988; Borrell, 1990). This paper also illustrates the evidences obtained from the experiment of the perception and production of voiced and voiceless English sounds in 200 Thai native speakers. The results reveal the analysis of errors, which illustrated the relationship of speech perception and production.
