Not for Actors!

IF YOU're an actor looking for an accent resource, keep moving!

This audiobook is designed for storytellers and role players according to the bumpf. My bad in that I didn't realise what this would mean.

It covers Irish, Northern Irish and even Dublin all mixed together. If you tried really hard you could pick out some useful tips but, for me,it isn't even worth the £2.45 I paid.

A lot of it is concerned with vocabulary and what a character might say in a story. ( Using the same selection of vocabulary).

Paul Meier ( the narrator) does deserve praise for being the man who set up the International Dialects of English Archive. In fact their website includes native speakers reading a standard text, which is very useful when learning an accent. Paul fills time by doing this here, but switches between Northern and Southern Irish making it rather confusing.

Maybe, if you're just after a general diddley dee, this might do the job.

Is good for a starter

It's got some good tips on that could come in very handy. A short piece but many different examples to try out. I'm happy I bought it
