Description

Chapter 4 reviews variationist research documenting the sensitivity of pronunciation to sociolinguistic variables like interlocutor. Sociocultural research shows that L2 learners don’t internalize raw forms, but rather “voices” which imbue forms with elements of the original social context and are expressed in language play and double-voicing. Pedagogical implications are explored.
