Promotional Information

Sons et sens succeeds effortlessly in the nearly impossible endeavor of informing the learner of dialectal and social variation in contemporary spoken French through the teaching of some of the most difficult technical skills of French pronunciation. -- Zsuzsanna Fagyal-Le Mentec, Department of French, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Sons et sens is a beautiful mix of modern French culture and phonetics that both students and instructors will adore. The exercises and explanations make phonetics more than just fun; they make the subject immediately relevant. This book will without doubt become the new standard text for Applied French Phonetics courses. -- Nathan Owens, professor, French and applied phonetics, Old Dominion University Sons et sens is an instant reference for students seeking to improve their French accent and instructors aiming to help them do so. No other textbook combines this level of detail with clear, concise explanations and naturalistic, contextualized pronunciation practice. Very highly recommended. -- Christopher Stewart, assistant professor of French linguistics, University of Texas-Arlington
