    Pronunciation is one of the core areas of linguistics, language teaching and applied linguistics. It is a salient aspect of spoken language and is of widespread interest to researchers because of the window it provides on questions involving spoken language, and to teachers because of its relevance to the immediate concerns of classroom instruction. This new four volume collection will gather the key historical articles and contemporary research in pronunciation to provide a one stop research resource for student and scholar.
