The Book of Pronunciation is a definitive account of the key role pronunciation plays in teaching and learning, providing a highly authoritative but hugely accessible overview of the essential elements of English pronunciation as well as a wide range of classroom practice.
The Book of Pronunciation is accompanied by a CD, which provides models for the teacher and practice for the learners.
This book is the definitive resource for language teachers:
The Book of Pronunciation contains three distinctive parts which focus in turn on theory, practice and development:
Part A answers frequently asked questions, reassures teachers on why, when and how teaching pronunciation can be both necessary and beneficial, and gives a comprehensive account of all the elements a successful teacher should know. The CD illustrates the explanations.
Part B provides classroom practice through a range of activities spread over six chapters, introducing pronunciation and covering Sounds, Symbols and Spelling, Stress and Connected Speech, Rhythm and Intonation. The CD enhances the procedures.
Part C offers more to the teacher who wants more – in the form of quizzes and questionnaires, tasks and checklists – and fascinating further knowledge. For the teacher who wants to go further, The Book of Pronunciation offers the opportunity.
