It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the
influence of the use of learning strategies on second
language proficiency. So far, however, there has been
little discussion about the relationship between
second language pronunciation proficiency and
pronunciation learning strategy use. In addition, no
research has been found that surveyed the
relationship between pronunciation ability and the
particular pronunciation learning strategy use. The
main objectives of the study discussed in this book,
therefore, were to a) give a detailed picture of the
pronunciation learning strategy use of Turkish
university students learning English; b) investigate
the relationship between pronunciation ability and
pronunciation learning strategy use; and c) examine
the ways a number of other variables may relate to
pronunciation ability and pronunciation strategy use.
This book is expected to be useful to graduate
students conducting academic research and teachers of
English who have a zest to make use of what research
brings for their classrooms. Five seperate chapters
following the traditional quantitative research
method try to shed more light on the idea of
pronunciation learning strategies.
