'Recent Research in Second Language Phonetics/Phonology: Perception and Production' reports the findings of seventeen interphology studies on perception/production of sounds by different first language speakers. All the papers describe careful empirical research, and as such will be of great interest to anyone working, or intending to work, in the specific field of second language phonological acquisition. However, given that speech production and perception are highly complex skills, the research findings in this volume will also be relevant to those with a broader interest in language learning or cognition in general.

About the Author:

Michael Watkins is Associate Professor in the Modern languages Department of the Federal University of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil, where he has been teaching English Language and Phonology since 1994. His main research interest is variability in vowel reduction by Brazilian speakers of English, but he also has a strong interest in second language assessment. Andreia S. Rauber is a researcher at University of Minho, Braga, Portugal. Her research interests are on speech perception and production, foreign language teaching and learning, the acquisition of English phonology by Brazilian, Portuguese and Chinese learners, and cross-dialect acoustic descriptions of sounds. Barbara O. Baptista holds a PhD in Applied Linguistics from the University of California at Los Angeles and is Professor of English and Applied Linguistics at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina. Her area of interest is the learning, teaching, perception and production of English phonetics and phonology by nonnatives. Her most relevant recent publication, with Michael Alan Watkins, is English with a Latin Beat: Studies in Portuguese/Spanish-English Interphonology by John Benjamins.

Review:

"The study of second-language perception and phonology is exciting because it is very interdisciplinary, addressing topics such as age-related changes in neural plasticity, the architecture of human speech processing, and practical techniques for improving second-language learning. This book provides a highly useful international survey of work in this field, and is particularly strong in its coverage of phonetic, phonological, and pedagogical approaches." - Paul Iverson, University College London
