Even though second-language learners may master the grammar and vocabulary of the new languages, they almost never achieve a native phonology (accent).

Now, for the first time, Roy Major's Foreign Accent covers the exploding scholarship in this area and lays out the issues specifically for audiences in the second language acquisition and applied linguistics community.
