Whaddaya Say? is the result of research on reduced forms. Since 1981, it has helped thousands of students around the world understand English as it is really spoken. This easy-to-use listening book introduces students to the most common reduced forms of spoken English for "going to, want to, have to", and more - fully contextualized in conversations that are both practical and entertaining. Each of the text's 30 lessons includes an audio segment that introduces new reduced forms, followed by comprehension questions and practice exercises.
