Abstract

Talkers’ subjective ratings of talker characteristics influences the listeners’ judgement of the talkers, but it is less clear if talkers’ accent of their speech influences the listeners’ attitude. The present experiment tested the variance accounted for by speakers’ different region-based English pronunciation. In this experiment, we will test the listener’s differences in the speaker’s English pronunciation based on different regions, and determine the listener’s English pronunciation in different regions by scoring the social status, education level, friendliness and pleasantness of the talker attitude to discuss the relationship between the listener’s attitude and the English pronunciation in different regions.
