In this talk, I will aim to make some of the following points: 1. Not all pronunciation features are of equal importance for intelligibility. 2. The more common an accent variant, the more likely it is to be understood. 3. English has become a global lingua franca: “post-ELF” pronunciation teaching assimilates this fact. 4. Mutual intelligibility does not depend on accent homogeneity.

What does pronunciation teaching look like, once we assimilate the basic fact that English is a global lingua franca? In this presentation, we will explore that question. We will look at which aspects of pronunciation are essential for intelligibility and which aspects are more optional. We will look in more detail at how this distinction manifests itself on a phonemic chart.
