Seventh Annual Conference

Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching

Texas A&M University-Commerce

"Pacific Tower" campus, 1910 Elm St. Dallas, TX

Theme: L2 Pronunciation and Discourse

Friday October 16 –Saturday October 17, 2015

Traditional approaches to pronunciation instruction emphasized the accuracy of segments in artificial contexts such as minimal pairs (Trim, 1965). Even suprasegmental features such as intonation and prominence were drilled as individualized grammatical structures.  As theoretical interest shifted toward analysis of discourse, understanding the pronunciation features of speech in natural contexts has become increasingly relevant to both research perspectives and pedagogical approaches to L2 pronunciation (Shockey, 2003; Chun, 2002). The theme of the 7th Annual PSLLT conference celebrates these developments with a focus on pronunciation in the discourse context and implications for L2 pronunciation teaching and learning.
