by Paredes, Gabriela, M.A., Northern Illinois University, 2009, 115; 1465343
Abstract (Summary)

This work consists of the translation, from English to Spanish, of two articles related to the importance of teaching pronunciation in Spanish; and the methodology of pronunciation instruction to be applied in the Foreign Language classroom. These translations have been used to study the relation between linguistic discrimination in the speaker with a phonological accent in the second language, and the teaching of pronunciation in Spanish as a second language. Finally, a reflection of the process of the translation is included, with the purpose of illustrating the methodology followed to complete this work.
