The Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching (PSLLT) conference is an annual meeting held in North America that focuses on the exchange of research on pronunciation pedagogy and development. The theme of the 2016 conference is The Role of Technology in L2 Pronunciation Teaching and Learning. This theme is timely: In the last five years there has been an astonishing growth in smartphone apps and websites geared to second language (L2) pronunciation, or accent reduction. 

In addition to the plenary, the regular refereed sessions, and the poster session, there are two other key features to this conference: a Roundtable of international experts in L2 pronunciation research and technology, and a Round Robin session for practitioners in which several teacher educators will provide Tips and Strategies for evidenced-based approaches to teaching pronunciation.


Plenary Speaker

Dorothy Chun, University of California at Santa Barbara, Editor of Language Learning and Technology, will give the opening plenary address:“Visualizations of Pitch Contours in Web-based and Mobile Apps to Improve Pronunciation.”
