Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce our international conference English Pronunciation:
Issues & Practices. The conference will bring together researchers and teachers
of English, phonetics, phonology and EFL/ESL/EAP interested in the issues
surrounding English pronunciation, both native and non-native. Discussions will
cover a wide variety of issues, including (but not limited to) the following:
norms & reference accents
variability in native & non-native accents of English
methodology of accent studies
pedagogical implications
implications of phonological change
sociolinguistic aspects and issues of identity
analyses of national or regional language policy

We are privileged to have three plenary speakers:
- Professor J.C. Wells, will speak about the polling carried out for the new
edition of the Longman Pronunciation Dictionary.
- Dr. Helen Fraser from the University of New England, Armidale, Australia, will
speak about Cognitive Phonology and how it can help with teaching pronunciation.
- Professor Yvan Rose, Memorial University of Newfoundland and Collegium de
Lyon, will introduce the Phon software and PhonBank database and discuss how
they can benefit research on the phonology of second language acquisition.

The language of the conference is English. A selection of conference papers
will be published by the LLS research group at the University of Savoie.

The conference is organized by a team of teachers and students coordinated by
Alice Henderson of the University of Savoie (lecturer in English in the
Department of Foreign Languages & Civilizations and coordinator of English for
Academic Purposes in the Social Sciences faculty).
