Sound to Speech: A Pronunciation Manual for English as a Foreign Language.
The main objective of this manual, which contains 39 lessons, is to provide interesting exercises for practice in English segmental phonemes. Sounds are taught first within the context of individual words with emphasis on aural recognition and oral reproduction. The vocabulary is then used within the context of phrases and sentences to accustom the student to natural language rhythm and meaning. The drills also attempt to develop an appreciation for language idiom and culture. The text is recommended for use with "English Sounds and Their Spelling", on whose structure it is based. A table of contents and index to sounds and key exercises are included. (DD)
