Teacher trainees' speech production in reading aloud
In this paper, the speech production of teacher trainees who are better speakers and readers than usual is investigated in their reading out texts of fiction. The authoress analyses their articulation errors, cases of incorrect realisation of suprasegmentals and reading mistakes; then she compares the data with results of a similar survey in which the participants were students whose overall speech production was of an average quality. The analysis reveals that teacher trainees with better-than-average speaking skills also err a lot in reading aloud; especially prosodic mistakes and misreadings abound in their production.
