On Speaking Terms. A Practical Guide to Pronunciation for ABLE/ESL Teachers.
Gillette, Gloria W.
This English pronunciation manual for adults was developed by teachers for teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL), specifically aimed at those who do not have training in linguistics or foreign language instruction. It is a compendium of methodologies used by ESL teachers and is not aimed at any particular foreign language learner. Chapters include an overview of the principles and theories of language; specific help on the individual sounds of English in words, phrases, and sentences; a listing of foreign language specific (from Arabic to Vietnamese) grammatical and syntactical linguistic interference that teachers may encounter; a supply of foreign language-specific practice sentences; and several practical, meaningful, and enjoyable basic pronunciation activities for students. A feedback survey for ESL teachers is included. Contains 23 references. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (NAV)
