Investigations into pronunciation teaching
MetadataShow full metadata
This article reports on the main findings of my recently completed PhD (Couper 2009) and discusses the implications for the classroom. The findings are based on a series of three cumulative studies. With the insights gained and the focus provided by a Cognitive Phonology framework, Critical Listening (CL) and Socially Constructed Meta-language (SCM) emerged as two key variables which play a role in effective pronunciation teaching.
