Course Description: This courses examines how speech learning changes over the life span and why earlier is better when it comes to learning to pronounce a second language. Several hypotheses concerning the causes of a foreign accent are investigated and models of second language speech learning are presented. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of English by adult native speakers of Japanese. Pedagogical implications are addressed throughout and selected techniques for teaching pronunciation, using unfamiliar languages, are demonstrated. The course covers how to analyze spoken samples produced by foreign language learners using scientific and systematic methods based on theories of phonetics and phonology. Students will apply their newly learned skills in analyzing difficult sounds for language learners. Students will also use these skills to develop materials for L2 pronunciation education.
