Phonetic innovations of New Zealand English in economic discourse
The article is focused on studying phonetic peculiarities of economic discourse of New Zealand English. The topic seems to be understudied and is extremely important due to the special status of this national variety of the English language: the progress of its pronunciation system was highly influenced by a number of extralinguistic factors - historic, cultural, territorial, socio-economic and socio-political. The issues of phonetic, intonational and prosodic arrangement of speech in the framework of business communication are insufficiently explored due to their multifunctional nature and their dependence on the emotional-volitional aspect of human activity. Authors' research findings will make a contribution to the theoretical studies on intonation and prosody of the national varieties of the English language functioning in the economic discourse.
