Abstract

It has been reported (Trudgill 2008: 10; Wells 2008a; Cruttenden 2008: 81-82) that Received Pronunciation speakers increasingly rely on glottal replacement for (t). The aim of this pilot study is to examine the way advanced Polish EFL learners perceive samples of RP speech with word-final t-glottalling. The paper describes an experiment conducted on a sample of first-year and third-year students at the AMU School of English. The audio stimuli used in the research comes from TV interviews with Prince Henry of Wales. As there has been no previous research on the topic, this pilot study may serve as a preliminary to a larger-scale experiment.
