Phonetics and phonology play a significant role in improving the pronunciation of EFL (English Language Learner). Some methods of foreign language teaching, such as the audiolingual method, place a great deal of emphasis on pronunciation lessons. Even though the pronunciation isn’t taught as a separate module, its importance in communication is highlighted when integrated into other oral tasks in the communicative approach. The ability to pronounce words clearly is an essential component of communicative competence, according to Morley (1991). The importance of pronunciation in multilingual/multicultural communication is becoming apparent because globalization and English are the world’s top lingua franca. It should be EFL students’ and teachers’ main goal to pronounce English in an understandable manner.
Accordingly, this monograph serves as a guide to aid EFL learners and teachers in learning and teaching English pronunciation, respectively. It is not difficult for students to follow technical jargon in this book since it contains many illustrations and figures. It is different from many books on phonetics and phonology. Instead of focusing heavily on theoretical argumentation and generative phonological discussions, this book focuses on physiological and practical aspects of phonetics and phonology. It has been found that NN (non-native) speakers of English perceive and produce phonological features is a vital requirement for maintaining global intelligibility.
