"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 languages.
Of interest to: Phoneticians, Phonologists, Prosody Experts, Second Language Acquisition Researchers, Practicing Language Teachers
