Intelligibility Judgment of English Word Stress by Chinese Listeners

This proposal attempts to investigate the role of word stress in intelligibility. The issue in this study is whether incorrect placement of word stress by a nonnative speaker renders the form of words unintelligible to an interlocutor. Through the comprehensive investigation of Chinese ESL students’ performances on English word stress, a deeper understanding of acquisition of supra-segmental phonology and the priority of pronunciation teaching can be given.
