Book: Voice and Mirroring in L2 Pronunciation Instruction

Chapter: Conclusion

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42471


Chapter 7 summarizes the research-based case presented for prioritizing intelligibility and stance as important goals in the learning and teaching of L2 pronunciation. Top-down approaches to pronunciation should be an essential part of L2 pedagogy. We hope teachers reading this book will undertake Mirroring Projects with their own group of students.
