This book advocates a new approach to pronunciation teaching, in which the goal is mutual intelligibility among non-native speakers, rather than imitating native speakers. It will be of interest to all teachers of English as an International Language, especially Business English. It proposes a basic core of phonological teaching, with controversial suggestions for what should be included.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book challenges major aspects of current practice with honesty, rigour, and depth, and the author is to be congratulated firstly for having the courage to take on an area of ELT which is both linguistically and culturally a minefield, and secondly for offering such a fresh vision of the teaching of the pronunciation of English. Without doubt, the book is essential reading for teachers, teacher educators, publishers, and examining boards alike.' * Applied Linguistics Journal *
'... thoroughly thought-provoking and well worth studying.' * IATEFL Newsletter *
'Challenging to the end... a wholly thought-provoking text.' * Wayne Trotman, EL Gazette, June 2001 *
