Book Information


Title: Pronunce Straniere dell'Italiano (ProSIt)
Written By: Luciano Canepari
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Romance Linguistics 53

In a few short initial chapters, Natural Phonetics and Tonetics are
presented, including neutral (or 'standard') Italian pronunciation (and a
concise indication of regional pronunciations, which are very remarkable,
in Italy). Very accurate descriptions of 43 language groups of foreign
accents of Italian follow, with precise figures and symbols. Starting from
the single chapters, teachers and students can identify and prevent
pronunciation problems, by preparing general or personalized phono-tonetic
teaching strategies.

Although a basic knowledge of the Italian language is highly welcome, the
many illustrations and transcriptions can speak for themselves.
