Foreign Accent Management is a guide to the management of accents for non-native speakers of the English language of European, African, Asian, or Indian origin. The author has compiled numerous valuable techniques in Speech-Language Pathology that have been in use for many years along with practical ideas gathered from workshops, tutoring, and speech therapy practice. While this book will not erase one's accent, it can increase the readers awareness of accent modification and provide the tools and techniques to enhance and manage one's accent long-term. Six audio CDs are included with the book to lead the reader through the exercises contained in all 12 chapters. In addition to reinforcing and clarifying the exercises, the audio CDs provide a clear model for the correct pronunciation of all speech sounds in the English language.
