Laroy, C. (1995). Pronunciation.
New York: Oxford U. Press.
This is a collection of recipe-style pronunciation
activities that encourage learners to bring body, mind, and soul to the
task of pronunciation improvement. The text serves as a resource for teachers
who are seeking not only specific activities for perception and production,
especially in the areas of stress, rhythm, and intonation, but also activities
that address some of the underlying, affective variables that can impact
progress in pronunciation. Through relaxation techniques, music, and physical
movement, the author acknowledges the synchrony between speech rhythm and
movement and the importance of attitude toward changing pronunciation.
