Pronunciation Research by Written Questionnaire

John C. Wells

University College London, UK

This paper discusses pronunciation research using a written questionnaire to ask people overt questions about their pronunciation. Several investigations that have used this approach are discussed. The technique is particularly useful for large-scale surveys of variability in lexical incidence or in the phonological system. It is unsuitable for surveying variability in phonetic realization.
