Pronunciation is probably the most neglected aspect of English language teaching. An effective teacher considers the teaching of pronunciation an integral part of the course. Phonology is the study, science, analysis, and classification of the physical properties of sounds. In this unit we deal with the areas of STRESS, RHYTHM, and INTONATION, as well as concentrating on the International Phonetic Alphabet and its use in helping students to come to an understanding of the pronunciation of English.

Linking: Marble Arch becomes marblarch
Sound dropping (t,d): Bond Street becomes bon street
Sound changing: Green Park becomes Greem Park
Extra lettering: Anna and the king becomes Annner and
