PostSubject: Accents Some ideas   Tue Dec 28, 2010 9:25 pm

Since taking up voice acting I have been paying close attention to accents. Some accents are from the way people pronounce words, I.E. the Scottish and Spanish burr or rolling of the r.

However, I was listening to a friend from Germany via Britain and realized that her pronunciation of words was correct according to 'standard' American English. The accent came from the use of vocal muscles that are not normally used here. I have noticed this with other people. The pronunciation is what we consider correct but the sound is different. Different languages and dialects use different muscles to speak.

The trick then is to develop those muscles. At least that is what I think.

I was always told that one should repeat the vowels over and over while getting louder. Also, pronounce 'U' as 'Ooooooh' (as in 'Things that make you go oh'). Mind you, my old theatre studies teacher was a bit mental

Laughing Any tips are potentially useful, mental or not.

Off Topic: What is with this word 'whist' that takes the place of our while? It sounds archaic to me. Smile 'Whist you go on doing the vowel thing I will practice burring. Very Happy

Interesting spell check accepts it as a word but I have a sneaky suspicion my spell check immigrated from Britain.
