A corpus-based online pronunciation learning system: The pedagogical applications of spoken corpus in improving Hong Kong/Mainland university students’ English pronunciation

This project aims to develop a corpus-based, online pronunciation learning system to help HKIEd’s teachers, learners and researchers have a better understanding of the major problems in learning pronunciation by Hong Kong and Mainland English learners. A learners’ pronunciation corpus will be established and analysed in order to (a) identify learners’ recurrent difficulties in using English segmental features and suprasegmental features accurately and appropriately and (b) suggest possible remedies that may reduce or eliminate such difficulties. The research findings and products will inform teaching and enhance teaching quality.
