Class Information

American Dialects

This class will explore dialects of the United States through experiential based exercises, textwork, and play. The class will also provide an introduction to phonetics and phonology (the mechanisms of speech sounds, and the ways in which we produce and alter these sounds in different languages and dialects), which will cover basic IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) and physiological explorations of the vocal tract. Actors will practice dialects using texts from film, theatre, and television, as well as improvisational games.
Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Skills Learned: American English dialects, phonetics/phonology for actors, human-centered voice and speech work.

Supplies Needed: Pen, paper, and water bottle.
