"Non-Native Prosody: Phonetic Description and Teaching Practice" is a
response to the increasing interest in the field of prosody in second
language acquisition and teaching. The volume presents an overview of the
state of the art in second language prosody learning and teaching and
brings together linguistic research on the description and modelling of
non-native prosodic structures with L2 teaching methods and practices.
The first part comprises descriptions of non-native prosodic structures
(including intonation, stress and speech rhythm) as well as methodological
considerations of research in second language acquisition written by
experts in the field. These overviews of current theoretical models and
results from empirical studies are presented in a format accessible to
language teachers. In the second part, some of the leading teaching
practitioners and developers of phonological learning materials present a
variety of methods and exercises in the area of prosody.
The accompanying audio examples on the CD-ROM make a useful addition
illustrating the descriptions and exercises for various target and source
Of interest to: Phoneticians, Phonologists, Prosody Experts, Second
