Teaching and Researching Speaking (Paperback) (Rebecca Hughes & Beatrice Szczepek Reed)
about this item
Now in its third edition, Teaching and Researching Speaking suggests that we have less understanding than we might of important meaning-making aspects of speech such as prosody, gaze, affect, and the ways speakers collaborate and negotiate with one another in interaction. As the only book available to cover both the theoretical and applied aspects of teaching speaking in a second language classroom setting, this text is a key resource for courses focusing on speaking in a second language. This new edition is fully revised and includes include new information on technology and online resources, quantitative trends in conversation analysis, iconicity and universality, and trends in cross-cultural research in conversation analysis.
