“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: looking for ways to incorporate pronunciation into their teaching; wishing to expand their range of pronunciation activities; and wanting their learners to use language confidently and intelligibly. “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.
