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.

Subject Language: English
Abstract: Phonics is increasingly becoming recognized as an important tool in teaching native speaking children how to read in English. This paper will show that it is vital in teaching children to read English as a foreign language within the constrained time allotments of public education. It will also describe skills critical to teaching reading and examples of how these can be developed into eventual reading independence in the context of the Nagahama Elementary Schol English Program (NESEP).
