Second language phonetics and phonology continue to attract researchers and teachers, theoreticians and practitioners, with the former marvelling at the degree of variability in the L2 sound systems and the latter trying to find most effective ways of limiting this variability in their learners. As the field continues to grow, we need as much cooperation between the two approaches as possible. This volume offers a perfect balance between theory and practice, presenting original phonetics/phonology and classroom research. The applied approach that links all the contributions to the volume puts the sound system in the right perspective as an integral element of L2 proficiency. The book will be of interest to anyone involved in researching and/or teaching English to speakers of other languages. --Ewa Waniek-Klimczak
This unique collection showcases the exciting work on acquisition that's been coming out of Poland for decades. What sets Arabski & Wojtaszek's edited volume apart from others on L2 phonology is its wide appeal. There's something for everyone, from phonetic and phonological analyses of interlanguage data, to reading and phonological awareness, to paralinguistic cues in the classroom. --Martha Young-Scholten, Newcastle University
