This is clearly a highly successful and innovative pronunciation course for students of English! This text emphasizes the "musical" aspects of English: rhythm, stress, and intonation. The 17 chapters include: practice material, pair practice, and practical feedback. Speech sounds are presented within the context of speech patterns to aid recognition of grammar cues and enhance listening comprehension. The teaching points are reorganized, making the interrelationship between the various aspects of pronunciation more obvious. Students learn how to use rhythm, stress, and intonation to provide "navigational guides" for the listener. The emphasis on the relationship between speaking and listening comprehension makes this text uniquely helpful. This new edition offers visual representations of important pronunciation features, such as voicing and syllable length. It also includes a greater emphasis on listening recognition, more coverage of vowel sounds, and a clearer presentation of sentence focus.
