Reviews

A superb, timely, user-friendly contribution synthesizing knowledge and advancing practical guidelines on the burning question of the linguistic factors to target to promote intelligibility. Highly recommended for all educational practitioners concerned with enhancing learners' spoken English interactions, including as a core resource for teacher training. Talia Isaacs, UCL Institute of Education, University College London
