Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Second Language Acquisition in a Study Abroad Context
Edited By: Barbara Freed
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism, 9

This volume is a first-time series of studies which explore the relationship between language learning and the study abroad experience. The twelve individual papers, utilizing different research methodologies (quantitative, qualitative, descriptive), address various aspects of second language learning, including the acquisition of sociolinguistic competence, the acquisition of fluency, the use of communicative strategies and the development of oral and written skills. The studies are cross-linguistic and deal with student populations at the secondary and college levels who had spent between three months and one year in study abroad or exchange programs in Japan, Russia, Spain, Mexico, France or Canada.
