Title of Dissertation:
The accentedness, comprehensibility, and intelligibility of China English produced by Chinese students from three Chinese dialect districts

Supervisor:
Professor Jette HANSEN EDWARDS

My research evaluates the accentedness, comprehensibility, and intelligibility of China English, focusing on illuminating the underlying interrelationships among these three constructs and testing the effects of linguistic measures, speakers’ linguistic backgrounds and listeners’ familiarity with the target language on the perception of the three constructs.
