Speaking Styles That Don't Project An Image of Professional Competence
Suppose you are a scientist and researcher from China. You need to display your precision, your attention to details and commitment to accuracy. Yet in your attempt to mirror the speed
and accuracy of the speech of a native speaker, you consistently drop the endings of words, drop entire syllables and produce a slurred "impression" of American English.
Government contract sounds like "Gahmen contah" and
opportunities sounds like "opptoonty."
Supposed you are from India and have advanced degrees in Computer Science but make many mistakes in your spoken grammar such as seldom using articles "a" and "the" and often not using past tense verb forms. Your actual competency in
understanding complex technical English could easily be underestimated.
