Abstract:A detailed phonological analysis of problematic areas has led to guidance for teaching English diction at the sound-level, word-level, and phrase-level. For teaching segmentals, the articulatory position of individual consonant and vowel phoneme is introduced. Despite their importance for Korean singers, suprasegmentals have been given little attention in earlier diction texts. In my study, suprasegmentals are discussed in detail. There is a guide on the word level, and on the phrase level. Moreover, in the later part of the textbook, the exercises are designed not only to improve students' English pronunciation but also to develop their ability to analyze and interpret English song texts by themselves.
