Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: Many second language learners use the heart but not the art to communicate; that is why their sentences are tone-less and emotion-less. They, therefore, fail to communicate in a second language situation effectively. One reason goes to insufficiencies of the methods proposed during the last decades. In those methods, teaching intonation as an important part to pronunciation has been either neglected or underestimated. Thus, the need for a better understanding of the communicative competence is highly felt to enlighten the candle of pronunciation in general and intonation in particular. The present paper is an attempt to review some of the methods and present a few techniques in regards to teaching intonation.
