Class Information

World English Dialects

In this class we will explore the English dialects of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada 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: Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, South African accents, phonetics/phonology for speech work, human-centered accent acquisition.
