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: This study explores the relationship between affective variables and listening strategies use. The main objective is to investigate the relationship between extroversion/introversion/L/personality variables and the EFL learners' performance on listening strategies. The study was conducted on a group of 101 male and female Iranian EFL learners who participated and answered a Nelson proficiency test. 70 homogeneous subjects responded to Eysenck Personality Questionnaire and based on the result of this questionnaire, the subjects were divided into extroverts and introverts. Listening Strategies Questionnaire was developed to elicit the listening strategies of each group. Finally, to observe whether or not there is any significant difference between the two groups in term of listening strategies use, a case II t-test was carried out. The results show that Extroversion/Introversion personality trait has no significant effect on the EFL learners’ use of listening strategies.
