13th International Conference on Native and Non-native Accents of English
Accents 2019 Łódź, 12 – 14 Dec 2019
Accents Across Contexts
‘Accents’ is an annual conference organized by the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at University of Łódź, Poland. It brings together researchers and teachers interested in native and non-native accents of English, approached from a variety of theoretical and/or practical perspectives. The key issues discussed each year include individual accent characteristics, the dynamism of accent usage, accent in teaching and learning, the methods and tools for accent studies as well as pronunciation instruction. The leitmotif of Accents 2019 revolves around different contexts for the use of specific pronunciation features in spoken discourse in naturalistic and instructed settings.
