This course offers current and prospective teachers of English a comprehensive treatment of pronunciation pedagogy, drawing on both current theory and practice. The text provides: - an overview of teaching issues from the perspective of different methodologies and second language acquisition research - innovative teaching techniques - a thorough grounding in the sound system of North American English - insight into how this sound system intersects with spelling, morphology, listening, and discourse - diagnostic tools and assessment measures - suggestions for syllabus design. Discussion questions and exercises encourage teachers to draw on their personal language learning/teaching experience as they assimilate the contents of each chapter. A training cassette offers practice in assessing learners' pronunciation.
