Description

My past research shows that Aviation English standard phraseology (AESP) and Conversational English (CE) differ phonologically to the degree that they may not be mutually intelligible. My current study examines AESP intelligibility for three different populations: native English speaking non-pilots, native English speaking pilots and non-native English speaking pilots. Findings indicate that conversational English proficiency is not a sufficient or appropriate predictor of Aviation English proficiency. Yet little AESP is taught prior to pilot flight training. While they are trained in CE, flight students are not trained in AESP intelligibility. This workshop focuses on design elements of AESP training aids.
