Review quote

"I very much enjoyed reading this book. It provides very interesting discussions of up to date issues in pronunciation teaching and learning as well as covering the phonology and phonetics of English in a highly informative and clear way. I particularly appreciated the activities and this is certainly a book I would like to use on the next phonology and pronunciation course I teach. I think it will liven things up no end!"--Sanford Lakoff
