Example paragraph with in-text citation:  A few researchers in the linguistics field have developed training programs designed to improve native speaker’s ability to understand accented speech [1]. Their training techniques are based on the research described above indicating that comprehension improves with exposure to non-native speech [2, 3, 4]. Derwing et al. [5] conducted their training with students preparing to be social workers, but note that other professionals who work with non-native speakers could benefit from a similar program.
