    Widely recognized as the most complete and rigorous text of its kind since it was first published in 1942, Speak With Distinction is an invaluable resource. It presents a comprehensive study of the sounds of Spoken English in their most important phonetic environments. This most recent revision also adds much material for comparisons of speech sounds;suggestions for accurate, efficient and conversational ways of combinin g the sounds into connected utterance; indications that foster a workingknowledge of two dialects of speech (General American and what Mrs. Ski nner called Good Speech for classic and elevated texts); and beginning material to show application of the principles of Good Speech to well-written texts.

    Some important additions to the book are the extensive Glossary and Index, abundant guides to pronunciations, new sections featuring such details as the complete “Ask-List” of words, a program for the elimination of glottal attacks of vowel and dipthong sounds, greatly expanded practice material of phrases and sentences, and anupdated Chart showing several levels of phonetic transcription and spel ling equivalents in current usage.

    Speak With Distinction can be used in several ways: as a primary educational textbook for both the beginning and advanced actor; as a supplementary textbook for teachers and students who have their own methods and agenda for study; and as a reference book for teachers, speech coaches and directors.
