Researchers Derwing and Munro (2009) described three dimensions of an accent that contribute to communicative effectiveness (via https://www.asha.org/Practice-Portal/Professional-Issues/Accent-Modification/):
Accentedness: The degree to which an accent is perceived by the listener through the listener’s comparison of the accent to the speech patterns of the listener’s community.
Comprehensibility: The ease of comprehension of the speaker’s message, based on the time and effort required for the listener to process it.
Intelligibility: The level to which the listener actually understands the message.
