Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary English Pronunciation provides a comprehensive survey of this field covering both theoretical and practical perspectives on pronunciation. In 35 chapters contributed by leading scholars from around the world, this Handbook examines:

  • linguistic and historical background of sound systems and theoretical issues linked to sound changes;
  • pronunciation acquisition and factors related to speech production;
  • pronunciation research and applications to second language pronunciation;
  • the link between pronunciation and other language skills including perception and other socio-cultural factors;
  • pronunciation and its relation to World Englishes.

The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary English Pronunciation will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in pronunciation.
