Towards a Phonology of Hong Kong English.
Hung, Tony T. N.
World Englishes, v19 n3 p337-56 2000
Discusses findings in the first part of a research project on Hong Kong English (HKE) phonology, including the underlying phonemic system of HKE speakers. Subjects were 15 undergraduates at Hong Kong Baptist University. Using spectrographic analysis, it was found that the typical HKE speaker operates with a considerably smaller set of vowel and consonant contrasts than that of native varieties of English.
