Brief Outline

This study aims to assess the extent of American English seepage in the English of the Bruneians. It is hypothesised that there will be higher incidence of Americanised features in the speech of the children and that the frequency of occurrence is inversely proportional to the age groups, that is, the younger the speakers, the more evident is the influence of American English in their English pronunciation.
