    2. If not used on a regular basis, a second or foreign language may deteriorate. The foreign accent may lead to the perception of segmental sound substitutions (substitution on the acoustics aspects of a speech).

The foreign accent may lead to the perception of segmental sound substitutions (substitution on the acoustics aspects of a speech). This sentence is a bit confusing because I know that the foreign accent influences both our perception and choice of sounds, which Trubetskoy calls "le crible phonologique", the obstacle our mother tongue poses for us to perceive foreign sounds properly. But for some reason, you mentioned substitutions, but its use here is not clarified (I hope it is in some other paragraph). Therefore, given that remark, I'd reformulate the sentence as following: The foreign accent may cause a distorted perception of target language sounds, which also results in distorted reproduction of those sounds.
