About this book

Introduction

Second language phonology is approached in this book from the perspective of data-based studies into the English sound system as used by native and non-native speakers of the language. The book offers a unique combination of psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic and pedagogical approaches, with individual contributions investigating the effect of selected conditioning factors on the pronunciation of English. With all the richness of approaches, it is a strong phonetic background that unifies individual contributions to the volume. Thus, the book contains a large body of original, primary research which will be of interest to experienced scientist, practitioners and lecturers as well as graduate students planning to embark on empirical methods of investigating the nature of the sound system.

Reviews

“The book is a collection of eighteen studies, mainly empirical, into the English sound system as used by native speakers and L2 learners … . most papers incorporate pedagogical implications, which makes this volume highly relevant not only to researchers but also to EFL practitioners.” (The Year’s Work in English Studies, Vol. 94 (1), 2015)
