Descripción

Pronunciation in SLA is a really broad area of study and its different domains (from sounds to intonation) need to be clearly identified so as to solve difficulties and take action in different teaching-learning contexts. Once the specific domains are recognized, can we distinguish achievable from non-achievable goals? Does this distinction help us decide on productive courses of action in the classroom? Can we set better assessment criteria? In this webinar we will reflect on the importance of disentangling the all-inclusive term pronunciation and see how we can work towards (non)achievable goals. Special emphasis will be given to the notions of interphonology and intelligibility, particularly in relation to word stress and international communication.
