This volume is a collection of 13 chapters, each devoted to a particular issue that is crucial to our understanding of the way learners acquire, learn, and use an L2 sound system. In addition, it spans both theory and application in L2 phonology. The book is divided into three parts, with each section unified by broad thematic content: Part I, “Theoretical Issues and Frameworks in L2 Phonology,” lays the groundwork for examining L2 phonological acquisition. Part II, “Second Language Speech Perception and Production,” examines these two aspects of L2 speech in more detail. Finally, Part III, “Technology, Training, and Curriculum,” bridges the gap between theory and practice. Each chapter examines theoretical frameworks, major research findings (both classic and recent), methodological issues and choices for conducting research in a particular area of L2 phonology, and major implications of the research findings for more general models of language acquisition and/or pedagogy.

Table of Contents
“This volume is a wonderful collection that will prove to be a valuable resource for many researchers and students. Most people tend to think of the study of second language (L2) phonology as a narrow, specialized field. This anthology clearly demonstrates the range of issues that must be addressed to fully explore the question of how people learn the sound system of a L2. [...] Each of these chapters is comprehensive and accessible. Taken together, they provide a snapshot of the state of the art in L2 phonology research. The list of references alone would have been a valuable contribution to the field, but the thoughtful commentaries provided throughout this volume make it a must-have for libraries, professors, and students.”
