frish snow peace

Native American English speakers, wanna hear all about frish snow peace, a plastik snak, and shtella's brudder boob? Please take a few moments to judge the foreignness of some audio clips of people speaking a simple English sentence: American English accents.

Welcome to the English accent questionnaire. In this questionnaire we will ask you as a native U.S. English speaker to rate the pronunciation of different speakers, some of whom were born outside the U.S. We ask you to rate how native-like the pronunciations are. While we offer a set of 50 speech fragments, you are free to rate as few or as many as you'd like (of course we'd prefer more, but there is no required minimum). You may modify your answers, if you later (but before submitting your answers) feel you want to rate certain speakers differently than you initially decided. Also note you don't need to listen to the complete audio samples if you feel you are able to rate the nativeness of the speaker earlier. Please also answer the initial demographic questions.
