About this book

The book contains contributions from practitioners and theoreticians who explore the pronunciation of English from various perspectives: phonetic, phonological, psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic. In accordance with the unifying theme of the volume, individual contributions investigate the characteristics of a foreign accent, its production and perception, study the development of methods and techniques in pronunciation teaching, evaluate their use in classroom materials and in the classroom itself, and investigate the conditions for second language learning and teaching from the perspective of learners and teachers. The book offers a unique combination of a scholarly research with practical applications, inspired over the years by the work of Professor Włodzimierz Sobkowiak, who has researched pronunciation teaching and pioneered technology-oriented, corpus-based approaches to the study of English pronunciation in Poland.

Reviews

“The book is focused primarily on the status of pronunciation teaching and research in Poland, a context highly influenced by the visionary work of Professor Włodzimierz Sobkowiak in applied phonetics. … this book is a good representation of the value of localized research into pronunciation. If one takes into consideration how varied L2 pronunciation can be, resources which focus on pronunciation in specific EFL contexts such as this book with its Polish context are welcome.” (Arizio Sweeting, Journal of Second Language Pronunciation, Vol. 2 (2), 2016)
