It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

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: The Acquisition of L2 Phonology
Edited By: Janusz Arabski
Adam Wojtaszek
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition

"The Acquisition of L2 Phonology" is a wide-ranging new collection which
focuses on various aspects of the acquisition of an L2 phonological system.
The authors are researchers and practitioners from five different countries. The
volume has been divided into three major sections. Phonetic Analysis presents
five studies of language learners in both naturalistic and formal-educational
settings, which illustrate aspects of L2 production and perception. In
Phonological Analysis a more abstract and comparative perspective is taken, in
order to use recent theories modeling the route of L1/L2 pronunciation and
reading ability development to account for observable tendencies in learner
behavior. Pedagogical Perspectives consists of four contributions of high
practical value, which look at the mastery of native-like or highly intelligible
pronunciation as an important component of L2 education.
