Students explore phonological theory in order to build effective second language (L2) pronunciation pedagogy; developing their own auditory perception is an important part of this learning. The subject gives primary attention to the prosody of English, that is, to stress, rhythm and intonation; and secondary attention to the phonemic level of English, that is, to individual sounds and their combinations.
