This course will explore a range of accents that are necessary for the working actor on stage and in film. Building on the skills acquired in “IPA & Dialects”, all students will learn core dialects ranging from Standard British (RP), to Cockney and Estuary London, and American accents ranging from the Deep South to New York City. Depending on class make-up, further type-appropriate accents may be explored such as Irish, West Indian, African, Australian etc. Students will complete a final project of researching an accent or dialect of their choosing firsthand, teaching it to themselves, and presenting it to the class. Previous knowledge of phonetics and Neutral American Speech is a must.
