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.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to pore attentive inquiry over vocabulary learning/acquisition strategies and techniques within the scope of second/foreign language. To begin with, a sketch taking in four salient variables which are learner, task, context, and strategies is introduced to pay particular heed to the review. After that, previously-conducted research along mentioned variables is critically considered. In particular, the analysis zooms in profoundly on task-dependent strategies for this variable is much more tangible and yet possesses practically more pedagogical essence. In lieu of seeking the superlative strategies and techniques that bring into being the paramount outcomes, the investigator implies the relative efficiency of each single strategy and technique. The organic notion underlying this study is that the most effective and efficient lexical development will occur in multifaceted curriculums that attain a pedagogically well-reasoned symmetry between explicit and implicit activities for L2 learners at all levels of their progress.
