Multiple Englishes: Intercultural Communication, Intonation and the Linguistic Penalty

by Dr. Lucy Pickering

At a time when immigration and the use of English as a Lingua Franca are constantly expanding, the study of effective and ineffective communication between speakers of multiple varieties of English is critical. This presentation examines the use of culturally specific styles of intonation structure and uses that are different from local or standard English (in this case U.S. English) and how this can contribute to a “linguistic penalty” in the workplace.
