Swedish People's Attitudes to Different Accents of English

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate Swedish people's attitudes to different accents of English. The focus is on Swedish female informants' attitudes to RP, non-standard English English, standard Irish English and non-standard Irish English. Furthermore, this study aims to give a wider perspective on how important experience of specific accents is, in order to have systematic attitudes to them.

The results show that experience is very important. They also show that Swedish people have experience of the English language and some of its accents, although this experience is relatively limited. Above all, this study shows that Swedish people do have systematic attitudes to English accents, but not as systematic as native speakers of English have.
