Accent Modification is all about the “spoken word” and it is rapidly becoming part of the professional repertoire of speech-language pathologists (SLPs). They join their colleagues across the aisle who address communication via the filter of second and foreign language teaching (CLT) via their professional perspectives in English as a Second Language (ESL) and linguistics. Both professional groups bring their unique skillsets to the field, as well as points of view that color the terminology preferred, the goals they feel are appropriate and even the merits of intervening in the process of improving one's accent in a language. While newer on the scene, SLPs are beginning to add to the historically impressive body of research easily accessible by those in ESL/Linguistics.
