Sound & Rhythm

Understanding Spoken English With exercises and answer key
  • Nancy Lippmann,

Sound & Rhythm takes the English language student through the first moves in learning how to decode the fast-moving flow of oral speech. Written for those studying in a classroom setting, the book takes a dual approach. It provides the phonological concepts that shape English sound and works on developing the student's ear, specifically training the student in how to take in a small stretch of sound and construct its meaning. While the primary focus is on the exploration of English sound for comprehension, a secondary outcome of Sound & Rhythm study is the ease of determining and correctly reproducing English pronunciation.
