"Thank you so much for all your patience with me.  More than a teacher you have been a motivational guide who has pushed me to reach beyond my horizon."

-- Anil Kapoor (Slumdog Millionaire, 24)


Tongue Tips Issue 10

on 16 November 2011.

Here's another newsletter: the second this year! In this issue, I'll talk about the diphthong heard in the word "out," how it should sound in a neutral American accent as well as in some other accents, and give an update on my recent activities. I'll also provide information on the IDEA website, of which I'm an editor-at-large, and which now contains more than 500 dialect samples from around the world.

Tongue Tips Issue 09

on 16 November 2011.


It's been some time since I sent out a newsletter, so I figured it was time for an update. I've just transferred this email list from my old pc to my new Macintosh computer, so please let me know if my information is out of date or if you receive duplicates. And, as always, if you'd like to unsubscribe or have received this message in error, please reply with "unsubscribe" in the subject line and I'll delete you from the list (not as painful as it sounds).

Tongue Tips Issue 08

on 16 November 2011.


A quick issue to point out the results of an informative and amusing dialect survey on the web, and alert readers in the Los Angeles area to my workshop appearance next Wednesday at Take One Film and Theatre bookshop.
