The book itself has incredible explanations for standard american dialect. HOWEVER DO NOT BUY THE KINDLE VERSION. It is basically useless. The pages are cut in half in bizarre formats, the pages are not, numbered correctly, and the text size changes for no reason. BUY A HARD COPY.

As the title says "Speak with Distinction", the emphasis is on "distinction". How distinct the speech described in this book? It is distinct from any dialect in the states--whether is general american (mid western) or new york/boston or southern. It is called 'Standard' in some circles. This stage standard was ( is? ) taught in many conservatories, theater/voice schools across the states. Recently, there is a backlash against this kind of teaching to aspiring actors, and this backlash has resulted in "Knight-Thompson speechwork", whose book is "Speaking with skill: a skills based approach to speech training".

What is this book good for? If you want a set of words with a particular vowel (lexical sets), or a particular combination of consonants (start, end and middle), this is handy. This book also contains many phrases, sentences, tongue twisters of a sort. You can use this book as reference and use the dialect/accent (say Jamaican accent) to train your students.

This is the bible on the classic, fancy mid-Atlantic accent. A great book for actors, linguists and geeks alike.

I highly recommend the book. But I don't think I should be made to post in order to continue reading and my studies. I paid for this book and I'm disappointed that a post is required to move on. Not good business. Not nice.

Indispensable for those who want to improve their speech

This book is a must have for anyone who wants to increase their voice skills. this is a textbook for my vocal production and audition class. it's necessary for actors to pronounce words correctly. for the everyday person, we must be understood. this book teaches the international phonetic alphabet that covers all the possible sounds spoken in the american language. it is a how to manual that guides you through each sound. this book is invaluable to anyone that wants to improve one's voice. there are plenty drills and exercises in the book for one to practice. the coolest thing about this method is that it teaches you exactly where to place your tongue to make the appropriate sounds. i don't know you but that is very useful. in schools we were taught to imitate and mimic through repeatition. i find it much more easier to learn voice when one know how sounds are produce instead of trial and error. this is a classic book for anyone to get because we all communicate. my teacher and i'm sure many others, call this the bible of voice training. anyone that requires voice for their livelihood must get this book, especially a hypnotherapist or a presenter.

good book for practicing words. Book is as useful as you make it, i see ALOT of potential in it.
Thick. Takes a while to dig through it. Well worth the effort.
