Elements of Pronunciation provides intensive and enjoyable practice in features of English pronunciation that intermediate and more advanced students usually find difficult. The clever and convincing dialogues concentrate on stress timing, weak forms, contractions, linking and consonant clusters, as well as providing valuable intonation practice. The dialogues are recorded in the following form: a listen-and-repeat section, then a recording of the dialogue at natural speed, and then a version with pauses to allow intensive practice. The material can be used in the classroom, in the language laboratory and by a student working alone with a cassette recorder. This book is accompanied by a set of four cassettes.
