The General American Dialect

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The General American Dialect eBook, richly enhanced with the author’s own recorded instruction, and beautifully illustrated, is one in Paul Meier’s acclaimed accent-instruction series, Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen eBooks. Twenty-three others are also available through the iBookstore. This one teaches the most widely used English dialect in the world – the most common dialect of the United States – and is a vital resource for both actors and non-actors who want the global clarity and credibility of American English.

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 reduction” specialist too, consulting with Rosetta Stone and 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, 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. He even gives you access to recordings of native speakers and allows you to follow up with a Skype session or earn a Paul Meier Certificate of Proficiency.

Enjoy browsing the preview copy, and then get the most widely used, fun, successful, and easy-to-follow dialect-instruction system on the market today.
