British Dialect for the American Stage
MetadataShow full metadata
Analysis of the differences between the three categories of British dialect for the stage: Received Pronunciation, Cockney, and Estuary. This involves the exploration of the oral posture, resonance point, sound changes, rhythm and melody, and grammatical and lexical changes of each. This also includes the application of the dialect to a monologue. Accompanying sound clip is of a monologue selection from The Cocktail Party by T.S. Eliot performed by Allison Gregory, beginning with Received Pronunciation, transitioning to Cockney, and then to Estuary.
