5.0 out of 5 stars At last, the cd 9 Mar 2014
By Pablo
Verified Purchase
Brazil's course introduces the advanced student of English to the workings of intonation and prominence in the language. This is an area totally unknown until a few decades ago when Brazil and his colleagues began to analyse an enormous corpus and discover the mechanisms operative. Sadly, in the current world of Linguistics research, where quantity rather than quality or usefulness is what counts, it hasn't been developed as it should, and certainly not in the field of English Language Teaching.
The format of this book is simple but pedagogically effective and can be used for both self-study or in a classroom. Brazil starts each of the ten chapters with a listening text to which the student first listens for meaning. This is followed by a "Listening to Intonation" section in which the intonational aspects of the text are analysed in a clear step-by-step fashion which both elucidates underlying rules and encourages the student into active analysis and practice. A third section "Listening to Sounds" then looks at the behaviour of individual sounds in the text.
It is of course a book for "advanced learners" and presupposes that the learner will not have problems with the texts' syntactic, semantic, lexical or collocational dimensions and will thus have the attention units necessary to focus on intonation and prominence. But the learner who has achieved an advanced level of English and who wishes to function effectively in the language sooner or later has to assimmilate its intonational dimension. Generally, this is achieved by immersion in an English-speaking environment, where the student assimmilates this dimension unconsciously (although Brazil's book could accelerate the process).
