Meeting Description: 'Accents' is an annual conference organized by the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University of Łódź, Poland. It brings together researchers and teachers interested in native and non-native accents of English, approached from a variety of theoretical and/or practical perspectives. Key issues discussed each year include individual accent characteristics, the dynamism of accent usage, accent teaching and learning, the methods and tools for accent studies. ACCENTS 2014 hope to continue the discussion of characteristics, variability and function of phonetic/pronunciation features in natural as well as in formal teaching contexts, focusing on the relationship between pronunciation research and pronunciation teaching by exploring what happens when 'accents go to school'.

The following plenary speakers will address different aspects of the ACCENTS 2014 main theme 'Pronunciation Research in Action':

John M. Levis, Iowa State University
Włodzimierz Sobkowiak, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań
Robin Walker, IATEFL-PronSIG

Come and join us to discuss accents/the pronunciation of English in an informal atmosphere in Łódź in December. We invite talks, workshops, posters and panels on all issues related to the main theme and all other aspects of ACCENTS.
