Consonant Cluster Reduction Observed in the Anglophone Community of Japan
This paper investigates the consequences of frequent interaction with non-native
English speakers on the English usage of native English speakers living in Japan.
Isolation from native speakers of English and frequent contact with non-native
speakers, including Japanese people, may result in a change of linguistic environment for the native speakers of English. This change is likely to influence their way of speaking English while they are in Japan.
