A State of the Art Report: An Update on Second Language Pronunciation Learning and Teaching.
Giauque, Gerald S.
An annotated bibliography presents 53 citations of dissertations, articles, and other works focusing on practical rather than theoretical aspects of the teaching and learning of second language pronunciation. Listed according to author, the subjects of the citations include: the need to teach pronunciation, teaching techniques, the use of reading skills and spelling in pronunciation instruction, the place of pronunciation instruction in the language learning sequence, generative phonology and the use of a cognitive vs. behavioral approach to pronunciation, learning by the rules of pronunciation rather than by imitation, cultivation of decoding skills, and dealing with cognates. The selection of citations reflects the theory that teaching the language student to generalize practical rules of pronunciation will make input more comprehensible and improve his speaking ability.
