Teaching English Pronunciation; A Guide for Teachers of English as a Second Language for French-Speaking Students.
Hacikyan, Agop; Cochrane, Jack
This book, a pedagogical rather than a scientific study of the French and English sound systems, is specifically designed for the French-Canadian student of English. Together with its companion volumes, "Teaching English Pronunciation: Exercises, Part 1 and Part 2," and their accompanying phonograph records, the series may be used separately or as a supplement to an English course given at the elementary, secondary or collegiate levels. Chapters deal with the following: (1) Pronunciation and Language Learning--the teaching of pronunciation, the teacher, the book; (2) Speech Sounds--the speech mechanism, the classification of speech sounds, consonants, and vowels; (3) Connected Speech--stress, intonation, assimilation, liaison, and elision; and (4) Techniques and Procedures for Teaching Pronunciation--diagrams of the speech organs, minimal pairs, pictures and objects, dialogs, phonetic alphabets, rhymes and songs, language laboratories and recordings, techniques for specific sounds, stress and intonation, and recommendations. Chapters II, III, and IV conclude with a bibliographical listing of references. (AMM)
