The Effects of Noise on the Intelligibility of Foreign-Accented Speech.
Munro, Murray J.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v20 n2 p139-54 Jun 1998
The effect of the presence of cafeteria noise on the perception of native English and Mandarin-accented speech was assessed in a sentence-verification task and a sentence-transcription task. The outcomes of both tasks indicated strong adverse effects of noise on the intelligibility of many of the accented utterances. (Author/JL)
