Dialects for the Stage: A Manual and Two Casette Tapes.
Machlin, Evangeline
This document contains a manual and two cassette tapes designed to help actors and actresses learn to speak various dialects. The tapes and the manual are arranged for the play-it-and-say-it method of dialect acquisition. The first three parts discuss the tapes and the manual in general, the dialect texts and dialect data, and the steps involved in learning dialects. Part 4 gives written and taped examples of nine North American Dialects, including such dialects as Midwestern, Southern, and French Canadian. Parts 5, 6, and 7 give examples of standard English (North American and British), the dialects of Great Britain and Ireland (Cockney, Welsh, North British, Scottish, and Irish), and European accents (French, Italian, German, Russian, Spanish, and general European). Part 8 gives the symbols and sounds of the International Phonetic Alphabet and lists the names of the speakers for each taped dialect. (TS)
