Summary: Aimed at enabling readers to improve their pronunciation of English so they can be understood effortlessly by native speakers in both formal and informal situations, this handbook teaches the vowels, consonants, rhythm, and intonation of American English using the principles of articulatory phonetics. Stressing a cognitive approach to learning and providing do-it-yourself exercises designed to put theory into practice, the reference hands readers techniques for imp moreroving their accents, provides steps for working up from phrases to dialogues, reading passages, and oral presentations, includes spelling patterns for ordinary words, academic words, and exceptions, as well as rules for stress placement, offers detailed treatment of rhythm, including reduction and linking, and contains a diagnostic speech sample and self analysis to help readers pinpoint their own language problems. Ideal for individuals who are non-native speakers of English and want to achieve a near-native accent. less
