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 chapter, against a backdrop of several years of critical practices in medical English education, presents a language discovery approach (Ghahremani-Ghajar, Mirhosseini, & Fattahi, 2007). It explores possibilities beyond mainstream conceptions of teaching ESP by suggesting how students may become involved in searching, interacting, discovering, and, owning language in real contexts.
