This paper presents a description of a plan of research on the pronun-ciation of international words by Dutch-speaking advanced learners of German as a foreign language. Pronunciation teachers have often found learners, even those who have a good 'overall' accent, to have problems with the pronunciation of international words. In order to effect more efficient learning and Leaching of the pronunciation of these words a research design is proposed which consists of (1) an inventory of the international words in German and Dutch, combined with a contrastive description of the nature and degree of phonetic adaptation, and (2) a study of the nature and size of the problems encountered by the group of Dutch learners mentioned above, based on an analysis of utterances elicited by means of various tests.
