Other Dialect Services

Are you an actor with a dialect role coming up? A film or theatre director in need of a dialect coach for your production? A dialect student or researcher? We can refer you to resources around the globe. Please consult our Links and Resources page for further dialect resources.

Or contact one of IDEA’s Senior or Associate Editors, many of them dialect instructors and coaches themselves, and possibly¬†authorities on the dialects in the regions they represent. Paul Meier, IDEA’s director, offers instructional materials through Paul Meier Dialect Services; for instance, you may hear his demonstration of the International Phonetic Alphabet there, and at the Website of Eric Armstrong, IDEA’s Senior Editor for Central Canada, who designed the interactive, animated charts.

One way or another IDEA can help meet dialect needs in the performing arts.
