You will find the PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER passage printed several times on the next few pages. Listen to my reading of theis passage on the tape in Lesson #7. Then mark up the scripts on the next few pages to remind yourself about the different skills you've been trying to master.

Mark this first printing of the script with reminders about the places you might begin JUMP UP and STEP DOWN units of into- nation. Underline the words where the pitch jumps will happen. You might even use different colored pencils to indicate as may different options as you want. Remember, there's no one correct place to begin intonation units.

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

HELLO, MY NAME IS DAVID, I'M REALLY HAPPY TO SEE YOU. I'VE BEEN WANTING TO COME DOWN HERE FOR A LONG TIME. I JUST DIDN'T GET THE CHANCE BEFORE THIS. THAT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE I'VE BEEN WORKING REALLY HARD, AND VERY LONG HOURS FOR A LONG TIME. BUT NOW THAT I'M HERE, I'D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT SOME IMPORTANT THINGS I'VE BEEN DOING LATELY. I'VE BEEN SPENDING A LOT OF TIME WORKING ON MY SPEECH -- TRYING TO LEARN HOW TO USE MORE OF AN AMERICAN SPEECH STYLE. I'M USING A LOT MORE PITCH CHANGE NOW. BUT I'M NOT SLIDING UP IN PITCH. I'M USING THE AMERICAN INTONA- TION PATTERN THAT A GUY NAMED STERN CALLS THE JUMP UP AND STEP DOWN PATTERN. IT'S ALSO NECESSARY FOR ME TO REALX THE FRONT OF MY MOUTH AND USE THE MUSCLES IN THE BACK OF MY TONGUE MORE THAN I USED TO. I ALSO STARTED WORKING ON SOME DIFFICULT PRONUNCIA- TION. I REALLY HOPE IT'S PAID OFF. WELL, WHAT DO YOU THINK? HOW DO I SOUND?

Use this second printing of the passage to mark the vowel sounds you practiced in Lesson #5 -- especially the ones that you have the most trouble producing. Remember to use the QUICK AMERICAN GLIDE technique on all of the double vowels. Then try combining the intonation units you practiced on the last page with the correct pronuciations you're drilling here.

Use this third printing of the passage to mark and practice the consonant sounds you learned in Lesson #6. Finally, attempt to read the passage with a mixture of everything you practiced on the last few pages. In addition, continue reminding yourself to generate speech movement with relaxed lips and with the American style of tongue muscularity.
