The Pronunciation of Somali-Accented Swedish

Zetterholm, Elisabeth and Tronnier, Mechtild LU (2012) FONETIK 2012 In [Host publication title missing] p.93-96
Abstract
The numbers of Somali immigrants in Sweden

has increased during the last years and there is

a need of more competence for teaching

Swedish as a second language to this

group.Star This paper investigates aspects of

difficulties in the pronunciation of Swedish for

Somali speakers. Recordings of two Somali

speakers living in Sweden have been analyzed

and it is obvious that there are pronunciation

differences between Somali-accented Swedish

and standard Swedish depending on the

phonology in the two languages.
