In view of recent debates on the global spread of English and its international lingua franca role, what pronunciation models are appropriate for millions of EFL learners? Which aspects of English phonetics should be taught to foreign students and which can be neglected with little loss in communication?

The Acquisition of L2 Phonology is a wide-ranging new collection which focuses on various aspects of the acquisition of an L2 phonological system. The authors are researchers and practitioners from five different countries. The volume has been divided into three major sections. Phonetic Analysis presents five studies of language learners in both naturalistic and formal-educational settings, which illustrate aspects of L2 production and perception. In Phonological Analysis a more abstract and comparative perspective is taken, in order to use recent theories modeling the route of L1/L2 pronunciation and reading ability development to account for observable tendencies in learner behavior. Pedagogical Perspectives consists of four contributions of high practical value, which look at the mastery of native-like or highly intelligible pronunciation as an important component of L2 education.

This book explores variability and norm in accent production and perception by native and non-native speakers of English. The issues discussed range from description of selected phenomena in native and non-native accents of English, analysis of similarities and differences between accents, their intelligibility and attitudinal value, through reports on the role of identity and motivation in learning English pronunciation, research methods in pronunciation teaching and ultimate attainment, to discussion of different aspects of stress, rhythm and timing in the organisation of speech. The volume contains contributions based on original data collected and analysed by researchers active in the fields of accent variability and English pronunciation teaching. The studies adopt sociolinguistic and/or applied linguistics perspectives in their descriptive and experimental accounts of native and non-native accents, addressing questions as to the sources of variability and the nature of the norms accepted or imposed in language acquisition and usage. By bringing the results of numerous studies into the foreground, the volume hopes to contribute to accent and pronunciation teaching and stimulate further discussion in the field of applied phonetics.
