Qs: Intro Texts in Phonetics/Phonology for Language Teachers

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: Intro Texts in Phonetics/Phonology for Language Teachers
Date: 07-Nov-2006
From: Richard Cameron <rcameronuic.edu>
Subject: Intro Texts in Phonetics/Phonology for Language Teachers


I currently teach an introductory class in phonetics and phonology for
Masters level students in Applied Linguistics who will go on to teach TESOL.

Question:

Can anyone on Linguist List recommend textbooks that could serve as
introductions to Phonetics and Phonology? Specifically, the target audiences
are Masters level students who plan on becoming Language Teachers (not
just TESOL) or, even possibly, Speech Pathologists? These students do not
plan on pursuing careers in Linguistics beyond the MA. However, they need
to be able to describe and assess intelligibility and phonological acquisition
in the language or languages that they teach.

I will post replies back to Linguist List, if I receive any. Gracias de antemano,
or Thanks. - Richard Cameron
