Abstract: The 4th Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching conference was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Murray Munro of Simon Fraser University (SFU) was the host of the conference, which was held at SFU's Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in downtown Vancouver. /L//L/The theme of the conference was Pronunciation in Language Assessment. Pronunciation is involved in the assessment of oral language proficiency and performance, but in scoring such tests, pronunciation is sometimes explicitly included by test creators and sometimes ignored. In addition, pronunciation ability must also be assessed in order to create an accurate picture of student needs. These varied uses of assessment are rarely addressed openly, but the conference provided a venue for such discussion. The 4th annual conference included 34 concurrent sessions, 26 poster sessions (13 each day), a plenary address by Pavel Trofimovich of Concordia University in Montreal, and a Language Learning sponsored roundtable on Pronunciation Assessment. There are 26 papers included in the proceedings, for a total of 300 pages.
