This book is the fruit of the first English Pronunciation: Issues & Practices (EPIP) conference, which took place at the University of Savoie, France, in June 2009. Researchers and teachers from sixteen different countries came together to discuss: phonetic variations and phonological changes; varieties, identity and their implications for teaching; and the use of new technologies in research and in the classroom.
