A Comparison between Dutch and English Language Attitudes towards Varieties of English
MetadataShow full item record
So far, there has been little discussion about language attitudes of Dutch native listeners towards English accents and dialects. This paper will focus on whether linguistic attitudes towards English varieties are formed by Dutch students of English Language and Culture, and if these attitudes correspond with those of English native listeners. We will first provide a brief overview of the literature that has been written on several issues concerning the present research. The next chapter will describe the methods and materials that were used in the execution of the research. Additionally, the results of the research will be presented, accompanied by a discussion with respect to the focus of this paper. We will finish with a conclusion and a reconsideration of the hypothesis.
