Date and Time:  Sunday, 29 January 2017 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm Speaker:  Takayuki Nagamine Speaker:  Irum Shahzadi

The current trend in pronunciation seems to be shifting from pursuit of native-like pronunciation to mutual intelligibility among the speakers, in the form of English as an International Language (EIL) or English as a Lingua Franca (ELF). It is known that the phonetic variables in an accent trigger different attitudes in the hearer towards the speaker, which is also true of L2 English.
