Title of Dissertation: Intonational Variation in Hong Kong English

Supervisor: Professor Jette Hansen Edwards

Research into intonation of non-native varieties of English in the World Englishes paradigm often focuses on typical features at the expense of variation. The PhD study employs a unified approach to analyse intonational variation in Hong Kong English, involving two accents: HKE with global orientations and HKE with local orientations.
