English enjoys a preeminent position today among world languages. However, even the large populations that are proficient in the vocabulary and grammar of English are not equally proficient in the pronunciation of the language. This adult population is the target audience of this book. Based on the RP (Received Pronunciation) model - the most widely understood English pronunciation across the world - this systematically organized and lucidly written text covers the entire range from sound to connected speech, i.e., dialogues, anecdotes, passages and short speeches. The book is in two parts: Part I deals with all important aspects of English pronunciation; Part II comprises a pronouncing dictionary. Intended for adult learners of English, the book chiefly aims at remediation, and most of the practice materials and exercises are given with this end in view. Besides, with the help of numerous listening exercises, the course sharpens the learners' ability to comprehend spoken English with ease, thereby training them to face real-life situations (for example, interviews) with confidence and competence.
