Pronunciation Group: Sentences

Date and Time


library 384


This series provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, faculty, and staff with English as an additional language (EAL) to practice their English pronunciation. There is no prerequisite for participation. Participants will meet weekly for a 2-hour session to progress through sentence-level pronunciation activities in the textbook Clear Speech by Judy Gilbert. Topics include sentence stress, sentence focus, emphasis of content words, de-emphasis of structure words, and thought groups.

Participants will be able to use the textbook free of charge within the classroom. However, students who wish to make use of the book outside of the classroom can purchase the book on their own.
