A comprehensive treatment of pronunciation pedagogy designed to provide teachers with the following:

  • An overview of the issues involved in teaching pronunciation
  • A thorough grounding in the system of North American English, both the segmental and suprasegmental aspects.
  • Insight into to the ways in which this sound system intersects with other areas of language, such as listening, morphology, orthography, grammar/discourse.
  • Teaching techniques, ranging from structured exercises to more holistic and communicative classroom activities and including recent teaching innovations which address the accuracy to fluency continuum
  • A treatment of pronunciation diagnosis and assessment measures
  • A discussion of options in syllabus design as it relates to the teaching of pronunciation.

Each chapter contains discussion questions and exercises. A training cassette provides opportunities to assess learner's pronunciation.
