A Brief Curriculum Vitae

Jack Windsor Lewis is a freelance author who for several decades lectured on, chiefly EFL, phonetics around Europe and other parts of the world. He worked on the staff of several universities completing a final nineteen years of full-time employment in 1989 at Leeds near which city he has since lived. His publications have included many articles, textbooks and A Concise Pronouncing Dictionary of British and American English (1972, 1979 London: OUP). In 1974 he recast for A. S. Hornby the treatment of pronunciation in the third edition of the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English giving, for the first time in any major EFL dictionary, its (100,000) entries in American pronunciation as well as British. This lead has been so very widely followed as to now be undoubtedly termable as standard practice.
