Accents and Dialects

Lecture no. 19 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

Accents and Dialects

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

As performers or public speakers, we may at times need to either acquire or reduce a dialect or accent. Study the process of adopting a new way of speaking: learn to place your voice where it needs to resonate, incorporate new ways of shaping sounds, and find the intonation and rhythm of the new speech pattern.
