Pronunciation and Intelligibility: Issues in Research and Practice
A generally accepted goal of pronunciation pedagogy is to help learners achieve
a comfortably intelligible pronunciation rather than a native-like one. But
what should this goal look like in the kinds of research studies we conduct, in
our classroom practice, and in the creation of self-study and computer assisted
pronunciation materials? How is intelligibility connected to comprehensibility
in setting goals? What part does irritation play in judgments of
intelligibility? Are there features that do not greatly impact intelligibility
yet remain essential to teach? Which elements of pronunciation are most
important in achieving a comfortably intelligible pronunciation? How is
intelligibility related to listening comprehension and to gesture? What
principles can help teachers make decisions regarding intelligibility? How do
computer-assisted pronunciation materials impact how we individualize
instruction for diverse groups of learners?

This second annual conference invites proposals for papers or poster
presentations on any aspect of pronunciation research, teaching and learning,
especially those related to how issues related to intelligibility and
comprehensibility impact the teaching of pronunciation, listening and speaking,
and also presentations related to innovative uses of technology in teaching
pronunciation. Papers will be given in English, but papers addressing the
teaching and learning of pronunciation for any language are encouraged.

Presenters will be invited to submit their papers for a peer-reviewed, on-line
proceedings of the conference.

Please submit a 250-word abstract by April 1, 2010 at
http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/PSLLT2010 if you wish to present a paper or
a poster at the conference. Acceptances will be sent out by May 1. Please
specify whether you would like your abstract to be considered as a paper or a
