General American

These recordings of Comma Gets a Cure  were all made by trained speech teachers who teach some variety of Standard American or so-called General American speech for the stage. They will be useful to those interested in learning what various American speech professionals recommend as a non-regional style of American English. This will be particularly useful to students whose first language is not English. If you are a voice-and-speech professional and a native speaker of American English, and would like to add your own voice to this page, please send us your mp3 recording of the passage and a short narrative-style bio.

For instructional materials or coaching in the accents and dialects represented here, please go to Other Dialect Services.
