Qs: Native Speaker Perception of Non-Native Speaker's Oral Discourse

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

Dear Members,

We are conducting qualitative research on how comprehensible a Non-
Native Speaker's (NNS) oral discourse in English is, based on the
comments of both Native Speakers (NS) and NNS comparatively. The
recorded file to be listened to is a modified version of a recording from
an actual course. The transcritpiton of the actual performance was
reread by a NS of English to remove bad pronunciation. The purpose is
to draw the attention of the commentors to the discourse structures
used rather than to the pronunciation, which might be a hurdle to
understanding what is said.

Please click the following address to find the audio file and the
document you will comment on:


We will be grateful for your assistance if you can contribute to our
study with your comments.
