English Pronunciation Models
Subtitle: A Changing Scene

The choice of a pronunciation model for the 21st century learner has
become a major issue of debate among applied linguists concerned with
teaching English. The standard pronunciation models - Received
Pronunciation and General American - have recently been confronted with a
new proposal of a Lingua Franca Core (LFC) or English as a Lingua Franca
(ELF), put forward as a didactic priority in teaching English
pronunciation to foreigners. This volume, which includes selected
contributions from the Poznan Linguistic Meetings of 2003 and 2004, does
not intend to present yet another model, but sets out to place the
teaching and learning of English pronunciation in the context of the 21st
century. As the needs of English users are clearly changing fast in the
globalizing world, the question is to what extent, if at all, models of
pronunciation have been able to keep up with them, and whether they in
fact should do so. Thus, key issues in the integration of pronunciation
into English as L2 curricula are explored.
