Reading List – Pronunciation (Phonetics & Phonology)

Site bibliography

If you are interested in reading any of the background material that shapes my approach to teaching pronunciation, here is a list of the books and articles on my bookshelf. Most of these references are more suitable for teachers than students. If the articles are available for free online, I’ve included links. My favorites for each category are marked with an asterisk (*). As I continue my own learning, I’ll be adding to this list.
