Pronouncing American English
Pronouncing American English Sounds, Stress, and Intonation
Ideal for a complete course or as a pronunciation supplement, this vibrant book features extensive communication and pair work activities, guiding intermediate to advanced students in their development of clear speech and appropriate intonation.
The workbook-size text is divided into four parts, covering the sounds of American English, problems encountered with American spelling as opposed to sounds, the use of a phonetic alphabet, syllable stress, vowel and consonant length, content words and function words, intonation, and using a dictionary. The units can be done in any order and include auditory discrimination exercises, Check Your Listening, and Practicing the Contrasts. The answers are in the teacher’s manual.
