How would you begin to introduce ESL/EFL students to English vowel sounds? This reflective question and many others await your discussion and analysis in this revised edition of TESOL Press's best-selling Teaching Pronunciation. This volume explores different approaches to teaching pronunciation in second language classrooms and contains updated research as well as a new, detailed lesson plan. Murphy explores how thought groups, or how speakers use clusters of words to best fit the communicative situation, are essential for a clearer understanding of most components of English pronunciation that are taught in the ESL/EFL classroom.
