ACTING WITH AN ACCENT–English Received Pronunciation, 3rd edition

$15.95

The classic, “posh” Received Pronunciation of educated speech in England.

Description

80 minutes of systematic audio lessons and an instruction/drill manual–teaching the resonance, inflections, and pronunciation of English “Received Pronunciation” (RP)–also known as “the King’s/Queen’s English,” “BBC English,” and “Posh.” For years this was the “upwardly mobile” accent of England. Though it was often called “Standard British” or “Standard British Southern,” nowadays it’s being spoken by fewer and fewer residents of England. It is, however, still the basic speech medium for many period English comedies and dramas.
