Title:Whaddya call that again? Materials for teaching connected speech
Authors:Nokes, James
Date Issued:2018
Abstract:In order to examine the phenomena of connected speech and the place technology has in its instruction, I must first examine the developments in speaking and listening instructor that have contributed to this area of research, instruction, and learning. The literature review, then, will present (a) an overview of current speaking instruction trends, (b) an overview of current listening instruction trends, (c) an explanation of connected speech and its features, (d) an overview of technology and computer-assisted language learning (CALL), and (e) an overview of technological interventions in connected speech instruction.
Through my findings, I hope to explore the following research questions:
1. How do instructors and learners feel about pronunciation, listening, and connected speech instruction?
2. How do instructors and learners feel about using technology to mediate the above instruction?
3. What do instructors and learners think of a number of activities developed in light of RQs 1 and 2?
4. How does the research literature reflect the topics of pronunciation, pronunciation with suprasegmentals, and suprasegmentals with technology?
5. How can a series of pedagogical materials support the technology-mediated instruction of connected speech?
