Publisher Description

"The American Southern Dialect" eBook, richly enhanced with the author’s own recorded instruction, and beautifully illustrated, is one in Paul Meier’s acclaimed accent-instruction series. Two dozen others are also available as Apple Books eBooks. Both on stage and in films, dialects of the American South are the most often required American dialect after General American. This eBook tackles the dialect of the Mid-South, common to Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas, as opposed to the Deep South. It’s a must for every actor’s tool kit. Or for a better bargain, get "Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen," (available at https://books.apple.com/us/book/accents-dialects-for-stage-and-screen/id1181641700), which contains this dialect plus 26 more.



Meier is one of the world’s most respected authorities on stage dialects, and is a successful dialect coach for theatre, film and voice-over. His accent and dialect instruction work is hugely popular with actors worldwide; he has coached film stars such as Tobey Maguire, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, Jim Caviezel, Simon Baker, Louise Fletcher, and many others. Professor Meier has trained actors at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), the North Carolina School of the Arts, and other prestigious conservatories both in his native London, and the United States, where he makes his home.



Meier is a leading accent modification or "reduction” specialist too, consulting with Rosetta Stone and Learnship (formerly Global English), and coaching Fortune 500 company executives in both American English and British English.



He founded and directs The International Dialects of English Archive (IDEA), the leading online source for accent recordings of real-life speakers.



Meier’s system coaches the “signature sounds” of the accent/dialect and gives you fun word drills, sentences, and great audition monologues from plays and films. All sound files are embedded in the eBook. He even gives you access to recordings of native speakers and allows you to follow up with a Zoom session or earn a Paul Meier Certificate of Proficiency.
