Regular English Pronunciation

Regular English Pronunciation | English Phonology | Scoop.it

"Regular English Pronunciation is a suggestion for how English would sound if its pronunciation were logically connected to its spelling. Regular English Pronunciation is the antithesis of spelling reform as the solution to the problem of English spelling. Instead of changing our spelling, why not change our pronunciation? It wouldn't involve reprinting all books or breaking with the past. And pronunciation is in our hands, not in the hands of "authorities". All we have to do is to pronounce words the way they are spelled."

Authentic communication: Whyzit importan' ta teach reduced forms? | English Phonology | Scoop.it
"This paper focuses on the evolution of my awareness of the importance of teaching connected speech forms in ESL/EFL classrooms. It also includes my recent efforts to compile the literature on the topic and formulate the rules underlying continuous speech forms including such concepts as word stress, utterance stress and timing, elisions, reductions, insertions, intrusions, simple transitions, assimilations, contractions, and combinations of all of the above."

The Spelling Blog | English Phonology | Scoop.it
"The Spelling Blog is about anything to do with English spelling, but particularly the teaching and learning of it. It prides itself on taking a FRESH look at what some consider to be a fuddy-duddy (boring and old-fashioned) subject. The Spelling Blog aims to point you in some interesting directions, make you question received wisdom and give you tools for improving spelling - your own or someone else's. It's also there for people who just happen to be interested in spelling." Johanna Stirling
