Anglais Pratique de la langue (LANG401_ANG)

Volume horaire: TD : 12h / TP : 12h


The class this semester explores the prosodic aspects of English, covering the remaining chapters of Peter Roach’s book: syllable structure; lexical stress in simple and complex words; aspects of connected speech (rhythm, assimilation, elision & linking); intonation (form and functions).

Students will continue to practice with standard symbols for broad transcription of “RP” English.

Differences with other varieties will be pointed out as they arise in context.

The lab sessions provide opportunities for students to apply this knowledge to improving their own pronunciation, with one of two standards (Standard Southern British English or General American English) as the target models.
