Meeting URL: http://www.pronunciationsymposium.org

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Phonetics; Phonology

Subject Language(s): English

Meeting Description:

In the field of second language pronunciation teaching and learning there has been a move away from privileged models of English pronunciation to embrace new varieties of English, and we have updated our notions of what it means to be a competent speaker of the English language. We are also very aware that any ideological approach to pronunciation must remain flexible enough to benefit the local context in which teachers find themselves. In this symposium we aim to present different perspectives on the most pressing current issues facing English teachers, teacher educators, and researchers in this field. We bring together a group of invited speakers who are experts in different aspects of research and practice in the field and look forward to a stimulating exchange of knowledge and ideas.

The invited speakers are:

Professor Tracey Derwing
Dr John Field
Dr Helen Fraser
Professor Andy Kirkpatrick
Associate Professor Ee Ling Low
Associate Professor Lynda Yates

The symposium, to be held in conjunction with the Australian Council of TESOL Associations International Conference, will feature a morning colloquium followed by afternoon breakout sessions targeting classroom teaching, research and teacher education.
