This book provides materials and procedures for intensive practice in English pronunciation, focusing on those sounds that most frequently present difficulty for foreign language students. Common intonation patterns and reduced forms are included. The format for the presentation of vowel and consonant phonemes is a unique combination of chart and sentence exercises. Ample practice material relieves the teacher of the necessity of preparing supplementary exercises. A special feature is a diagnostic test to help identify each student's particular problems. The book is a product of 40+ years' experience with "English as a Second Language" and "English as a Foreign Language" (ESL/EFL) students. The exercises have been extensively tested and have proved highly effective at all levels of study - elementary, intermediate, and advanced. Consonants, vowels, and reduced forms are dealt with in a separate section. Intonation lessons appear at intervals throughout the text. For convenient reference, they are listed as a group at the end of the Table of Contents. Phonemic symbols are used in lesson heads, sub-heads, and sound production instructions. Consonants are represented by International Phonetic Alphabet symbols; vowels are based on the Trager-Smith system.
