Phonology for Listening is a textbook for all teachers of English. It takes the plight of the learner-listener as its starting point. It is getting rave reviews (which you can read here) and it has been shortlisted for two prizes: the English Speaking Union’s English Language Book Award (2103) and the Ben Warren-International House Trust Prize (2014).
