In this paper we report on a study of pronunciation errors that was conducted within the framework of the project "My Pronunciation Coach", which is aimed at developing an ASR-based system for pronunciation training for learners of English with Dutch as their mother tongue. The aim of this study was to obtain quantitative data on the occurrence of pronunciation errors in Dutch English speech. We present the results of this study and compare them to those of previous investigations. Finally, we discuss the implications of these results for the development of My Pronunciation Coach.
