Who Speaks English to Whom? The Question of Teaching English Pronunciation for Global Communication.
Taylor, David S.
System, v19 n4 p425-35 1991
Discusses a problem involved in teaching English pronunciation--the question of intelligibility. Previously intelligibility has meant that nonnative speakers were intelligible to native speakers; the increase in the use of English for communication between nonnative English speakers has complicated this issue. Implications for teaching and study of phonology, pronunciation, and phonetics are discussed. (27 references) (JL)
