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: Intercultural Dialogue in Practice
Subtitle: Managing Value Judgment through Foreign Language Education
Written By: Stephanie Ann Houghton
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education

The term intercultural dialogue has become a buzzword at policy level, but there
is a pressing need to synchronise the terminology of policymakers with that of
academics. An overarching aim of this book is to explore the wide-ranging
terminology relevant to intercultural dialogue in order to promote clearer
consideration of the underlying issues. More specifically, this book reports the
findings of a research project conducted in Japan that brought teaching practice
to bear upon some of the main conflicting theoretical perspectives on how value
judgment should be managed in foreign language education. At the heart of this
issue lies the management of prejudice, which is a key dynamic in intercultural
dialogue that brings many other factors into play.
