Abstract:

This book explores variability and norm in accent production and perception
by native and non-native speakers of English. The issues discussed range
from description of selected phenomena in native and non-native accents of
English, analysis of similarities and differences between accents, their
intelligibility and attitudinal value, through reports on the role of
identity and motivation in learning English pronunciation, research methods
in pronunciation teaching and ultimate attainment, to discussion of
different aspects of stress, rhythm and timing in the organisation of
speech. The volume contains contributions based on original data collected
and analysed by researchers active in the fields of accent variability and
English pronunciation teaching. The studies adopt sociolinguistic and/or
applied linguistics perspectives in their descriptive and experimental
accounts of native and non-native accents, addressing questions as to the
sources of variability and the nature of the norms accepted or imposed in
language acquisition and usage. By bringing the results of numerous studies
into the foreground, the volume hopes to contribute to accent and
pronunciation teaching and stimulate further discussion in the field of
applied phonetics.
