Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Applied Linguistics and Language Teacher Education
Edited By: Nat Bartels
Series Title: Educational Linguistics 4

Applied Linguistics and Language Teacher Education is aimed at applied
linguists who are interested in understanding more about the learning of
novice teachers in their classes. The 21 studies in this volume provide
information on the complexity of novice teachers learning and use of
knowledge in a variety of applied linguistics classes such as SLA, Syntax,
Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, Phonetics and Phonology, L2 Reading and
Writing, Testing, and Content Based Instruction. These studies were
conducted in a variety of contexts, from North and South America to Europe,
Asia and Australia, and look at the preparation of teachers of English,
Spanish and Chinese.

The book also includes a state-of-the-art summary of research on knowledge
acquisition and use which provides applied linguists with a solid basis for
developing their ideas about their students learning and use of the
knowledge presented in their classes.
