Abstract

Oral proficiency targets in foreign language learning are typically expressed in terms of intelligibility. However, what makes non-native speech intelligible and accented is ill understood. The proposed project examines the link between intelligibility, foreign accentedness, and listeners' attitudes towards non-native Dutch. The results will contribute to our understanding of these concepts and underpin the teaching of Dutch as a foreign language.
