I was exposed to this book through a dialect coach who used it to help myself and others in the cast of a production of "Crimes of the Heart" (by Beth Henley) master a Mississippi dialect.

Blunt good, but not complete. com User, May 13, 2004. The book is an excellent introduction to the International Phonetic Alphabet. It actually tells you which position your mouth should be in for the correct creation of these sounds. I was exposed to this book through a dialect coach who used it to help myself and others in the cast of a production of "Crimes of the Heart" (by Beth Henley) master a Mississippi dialect. It was extremely helpful, giving examples of different words with vowel, diphthong, and consonant substitutions, and plenty of practice material.

I used this book for a university class about 6 years ago. I still use it every time I have to learn a dialect for a role or audition. Each chapter focuses on a dialect and gives a great introduction about the dialect's history and development. Following that, every sound change (consonants and vowels) are discussed with word examples. Phrase practice and paragraph practice finish each chapter, so the work is set before you in a way that you can apply all the same changes to whatever text you are working on. NECESSARY for any serious actor.

Great book!
  • Gugrel
Not really as clear as it could be.
  • Honeirsil
Best book for dialects. If you are studying acting this book is great. Has nearly every dialect able, I studied the irish and russian on my own
  • Zymbl
well, here's the deal. This is the best dialect book out there today,but it's old fashioned in a way. there are no IPA symbols and at times the ones in the book are confusing and incorrect. the audio tapes REALLY help though, Highly recommend.

Yep, I knew what I was getting when I ordered it, it came in good shape and on time and I got just what I wanted. THANKS
  • MegaStar
great
The book is an excellent introduction to the International Phonetic Alphabet. It actually tells you which position your mouth should be in for the correct creation of these sounds. The accents shown in this book are great for the beginner, but lack real authority when going for accuracy. Blunt is just that...blunt. The accompanying tapes are crude to be nice. They should be re-recorded for an actual production value. The source material however is amazingly good in showing the beginner the differences in sounds between English and other accents.
Woefully incomplete when dealing with African, Latin American, and regional United States accents. There is a second book entitled More Stage Dialects which would hopefully complement this problem.
Needed in the desription are the accents covered; Russian, German, Italian, French, British RF, Cockney, American Southern, etc. All in all a good purchase for the price.
