Fukuoka JALT:

Phonology and Language Teaching

Date: Saturday, April 12th, 2003 Time: 12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Speaker: Kenneth G. Schaefer, Temple University Japan

This presentation will be in two parts. Part one will focus on historical sound changes and how this gave rise to some of the well-known varieties of English. Part two will focus on suprasegmentals and intonation in American English. Schaefer will discuss the use of suprasegmentals to:

  • define discourse structures,
  • provide information focus,
  • express emotion,
  • define thought groups, and
  • mark grammatical distinctions.
Dr. Schaefer is the Director for the Temple University Graduate Program in TESOL.
