The Handbook of English Pronunciation presents a comprehensive exploration of the characteristics of English pronunciation, including language acquisition, English in the world, its relationship to modern technology, the shifting role of accent, and more. Featuring contributions from a global team of authors, the Handbook explores such areas as the pronunciation function at the sound, word, sentence, and discourse levels and the important and often inadequately described suprasegmental aspects of phonology. It offers insights into a wide range of relevant topics, including the historical development of English, global diversity of English pronunciation, optimum ways of describing features of English pronunciation, patterns of first and second language acquisition, and social attitudes relating to variations in accents. Through a careful balance of essential topics in both research and pedagogy, The Handbook of English Pronunciation is an invaluable resource, addressing this important aspect of contemporary linguistic research and language teaching.
