English After RP

Geoff Lindsey

In the words of the late A. C. Gimson, 'it would clearly be absurd to teach a pronunciation regarded by native speakers as old-fashioned or even comic'.

This is how many British people now regard the upper class accent of the last century, Received Pronunciation. Yet, around the world, RP is still widely used as a teaching model. English After RP is a guide to a range of differences between RP and contemporary Southern British speech, covering vowels, consonants, stress, connected speech and intonation. Also included is a Mini Dictionary of over 100 common words which illustrate the changes described throughout the book.
