If you've been paying attention to the mobile phone world lately, there are two names that will likely jump to the front of your mind: Apple and Android. While these two companies get the lion's share of the publicity (and a proportionately large number of device sales), both of them were actually very late to the party. Microsoft, it turns out, practically invented the smart phone. Back in the pre-iPhone days, Windows was arguably the biggest player in the nascent PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) market - helping the savviest and most forward-thinking businessmen get their work done digitally. By contrast, Apple was still trying to peddle the universally maligned Newton Message Pad.

The latest iPhone models were released on September 19th in the United States and the United Kingdom, and according to Apple, are the "biggest advancements in iPhone history." It's a clever play on words, as the new models both sport much larger screens than the iPhones of yesteryear. Whereas the iPhone 4S and below had a meager 3.5 inch screen (considered generous at the time), the iPhone 5, 5S and 5C were stretched out to 4 inches. Faced with stiff competition from Android flagships that have long featured big screens, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are Apple's authoritative answer to the growing number of iOS fans restlessly awaiting their own big phones. The new phones are powered behind the scenes by Apple's latest software release, iOS 8, which also brings many features and changes with it.This guide is designed to walk you through the most important parts of the phone, from the basics and learning how to navigate through the phone, to more advanced features like setting up email accounts and understanding what the cloud really is.

This engaging, succinct text is an introduction to both phonetics and phonology as applied to the teaching of pronunciation and to the teaching of pronunciation to English language learners. Section 1 selectively covers the main areas of phonetics and phonology, without going into any area in more depth than the average English language teacher requires or that the average English language teacher trainee can handle. Section 2 focuses on practical issues related to learners and how they learn languages, and what represents good practice in terms of classroom activities for pronunciation-including aspects such as targets, motivation and priorities. The chapters end with activities to help the reader understand concepts. Section 3 provides innovative sample activities which put into practice the theoretical points covered in the first two sections, answers to the various exercises, recommended further reading (both print and non-print), a glossary of technical phonetic terms, and a bibliography of works on pronunciation teaching. The text is accompanied by a Companion Website with audio recordings of model pronunciations and audio material relating to the activities.
