A New Look at Phonological "Redundancy."
Abbott, Gerry
ELT Journal, v40 n4 p299-305 Oct 1986
Certain concepts of redundancy at the phonological level are mistaken or misapplied. Three "fallacies" ("string of beads," vowel redundancy, and single error) of the nature of redundancy are explored. Although learners should be sensitized to other varieties of English, teachers should also provide a model of pronunciation that conforms to a widely intelligible standard. (Author/CB)
