Overview

(Limelight). This practical reference manual, with its precise, authentic instructions on how to speak in more than 100 dialects, has established itself as the most useful and comprehensive guide to accents available, now increased by a third in this revised printing. As before, the accents range from regional U.S. and British dialects to European accents that include, among others, the Germanic, Slavic and Romance Languages. Completing his around-the-world journey, the author then covers the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Includes two CDs.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Blumenfeld shares the expertise he has acquired over two decades of working as an actor and dialect coach. He begins by explaining the physiological awareness necessary when learning accents, then focuses on accents of people who speak over 80 native languages, noting variations within each and particular features to pay attention to, and providing practice exercises. The CD-ROM contains Blumenfeld's own vocalizing of most of the exercises. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    ACCENTS A Manual for Actors

    Do not waste your money. Go on line and order dialect tapes from Dr. David Alan Stern. I bought Mr. Blumenfeld's book in an effort to save some money. Not only did I waste 29.95 but I had to order, overnight express, Dr. Stern's CD. I bought Mr. Blumenfeld's book to learn an Arabic accent. The CD chapter on Arabic accents is literally 60 seconds long and the chapter in the book is 5 pages. Truly a complete waste of money. Perhaps I can use this book to prop up a coffee table
