LECTURE C1 Exploration: Accents of English

TEXTBOOK: UNIT C Accents in English C1: General American & Comparisons to NRP (Standard British English)

In the C units we will apply our knowledge of English phonology to specific types of English accents and practice the differences in sounds.

WHAT TO REMEMBER: Standard English (American (GA) and British (NRP)) are quite similar.

There are 5 main differences between GA and NRP consonants. There are 10 main differences between GA and NRP vowels. This lecture will discuss GA and NRP similarities and differences and offer

us a chance to practice these accents. TYPES OF VARIATION FOUND IN
