Pronunciation Contrasts in English.
Nilsen, Don L. F.; Nilsen, Alleen Pace
Designed to aid teachers of English to speakers of other languages in dealing with pronunciation difficulties, this text consists of three sections: (1) vowel contrasts, (2) consonant contrasts, and (3) vowel and consonant cluster contrasts. The prefatory section provides charts indicating vowel and consonant articulation, and the pages on which these sounds appear in the text; an explanation of the phonemic alphabet and the profile diagrams used for illustration; and suggestions to the teacher together with several sample exercises. A glossary of linguistic terms and a listing of the languages cited (47), with page indexing for reference to those areas of difficulty for each language, appear at the end of the volume. Each sound contrast appears with a simple analysis of its production, together with facial diagrams, sentences with contextual clues, and minimal sentences and pairs. (AMM)
