The Intelligibility of Three Nonnative English-Speaking Teaching Assistants: An Analysis of Student-Reported Communication Breakdowns.
Gallego, Juan Carlos
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v1 n2 p219-37 Dec 1990

Pronunciation was found to be the major cause of unintelligibility. (10 references) (Author/LB)
