Establishing and Validating the Temporal Perceptual Model of Foreign Accents and Intelligibility: Evidence from Acoustic Measures and Perceptual Judgments

In the PI’s series of studies (Chen & Chung, 2008; Chen, 2010; Chen, 2011; Chen & Wang, 2013), a temporal perception model of foreign accents and intelligibility was created. This project aims to empirically validate or revise this model by investigating aspects of English timing patterns spoken by native English speakers and Chinese speakers from the three concentric circles of English: the expanding circle (e.g., Beijing, mainland China, and Taiwan), the outer circle (e.g., Hong Kong and Singapore), and the inner circle (e.g., the US).
