The History and Scope of Teaching Pronunciation .

In this module, we will present you with four big areas that are divided in four weeks. Week number one will introduce you to the ample field of Phonetics and Phonology, we will talk about the evolution that the Teaching of Pronunciation has suffered in history, as well as the difference between Phonetics and Phonology.


Week number two will lead us to the interesting and vast world of consonant-sound pronunciation, we will work with the different type of sounds, the manner and place of articulation and of course the phonetic symbols that correspond to them.
Week number three, we will revise and work with the vowel-sound pronunciation process. We will talk about the physiology of the sound production and the type of pronunciation vowels have.
To conclude, in week number four, we will revise and work with the speech and rhythm of pronunciation. When sounds are produced, there must be a rhythm, there must be music, in order to make our ideas expressed clearly and the messages we are trying to come across, reach our audiences in a clear and correct manner.
Let’s begin with this small introductory text written by Marianne Celce-Murcia.
