Three monologues spoken by professional actors wrap-up the 325 page Neutral American Section. This is followed by Classical American (88 pages), Mid-Atlantic (16 pages) and Standard British dialects (62 pages), including accompanying exercises, audio selections for each adjustment covered, and three monologues spoken by professional actors for each of these dialects.The text book with downloadable audio and e-book, including audio selections accessible by simply clicking the screen, are offered together as a package
