|Portuguese term or phrase: ajustarem os traços de configuração|
|Logo, para construir esta representação mental, os falantes/ouvintes da língua receptora acionam operações de reparações para **ajustarem os traços de configuração dos sons ilícitos**, tornando-os, assim, familiares às suas representações mentais de percepção e produção|
Comments welcome! This seems too wordy to me.
However, to construct a mental representation, the speakers/hearers of the receiving language add repair operations to **adjust the features of the configuration of the ungrammatical sounds**, thereby becoming familiar to their mental representations of perception and production.
|adjust the feature bundles|
configuração de traços = feature bundle (see below)
logo = then
"Logo" infers simple follow-on and could actually be omitted, but it's unlikely to conveys any sense of "however," which implies a shift in the direction of argumentation.
lingua receptora = receptor language
"(Then,) To construct this mental representation, speaker/hearers of the receptor language enlist repair operations to adjust the feature bundles of the ungrammatical sounds and make them closer to their own mental representations of perception and production"
