Reconciling Theory and Practice
Brinton, Donna M.
CATESOL Journal, v30 n1 p283-300 2018
The nature of second language pronunciation research often precludes its application to the classroom. And even when research findings do have direct applicability to classroom practice, open channels of communication between researchers and practitioners are often lacking. We have subtitled this issue of "The CATESOL Journal" "Pronunciation: Research Into Practice, and Practice Into Research"--indicating our belief that research and practice comprise a 2-way street, with research results definitely informing practice but with practice helping to confirm these results and providing an additional, real-world test of their validity. The contributing authors of this theme issue (both researchers and practitioners), through their research and insights into best classroom practices, provide teachers of pronunciation much to ponder. This article seeks to draw from the authors' insights a set of core principles, firmly anchored in research results, on which to base pronunciation teaching decisions.
