SPLIS Webinar: Pronunciation: Muscle, Mind, Meaning, Memory

When:  Jul 30, 2020 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)


Pronunciation is uniquely varied. It is part language and part skill, part productive and part receptive. This means that we must vary the way we teach it. In this talk, I will explain how we can approach pronunciation teaching from four angles, labelled muscle, mind, meaning and memory. I will argue that the kinds of activity we use for each of these must be different, and I will ask participants to try out example materials.

The intended audience of this webinar are pronunciation practitioners, researchers, and material designers.
